<< Birch Tree Wall Eliminate
 
Birch Tree Wall Direct Start >>
[me birch tree wall, 3 kb]15m. The classic of the crag. Climb a groove then move rightwards to a ledge on the arete. Traverse the shelf (an ancient chipped hold, plus a huge cam and/or small wires might be of help) leftwards to the base of the left-trending groove. Balance up this to the top. A Direct Start is 6a and a finish up the arete on the right is a little harder and bolder than the original finish. © ROCKFAX
Start just to the left of the arete on the left side of 'Lover's Leap'. Climb the short wall till you can step onto the arete, good wires protect. It is then possible to move left and up (chipped hold) to the fine open groove/ramp.Can also be finished by stepping right onto a rib and mantleshelf finish. One of Brimham's best known classics.

Loved this. Great line, lovely moves. Gear doesn't seem great on first aquaintance but you're never required to place it from pumpy positions so it's a pleasure to hang around, dither, explore all the options and discover there's always something pretty bomber close-by. I thought this was well worth the 3 stars. Birds singing, a beautiful early summer evening and doing it with your big bro may admittedly effect star rating opinions.

Not sure why it's in the rockfax top 50 as it is quite dull. Maybe good if it is at the top of your grade but I found the lower scoring cracks on cracked butress much better. The last section is short on gear which raises the eyebrow a little.

Hard move to get off the ground. Failed first time but got up on the arete on repeat attempt. Tricky traversing across. Temptation is to hang onto finger hold but need to let go to make progress. Shuffle feet along ledge and get onto bump. Extra height allows forearm mantleshelving along sloping ledge.

lovely line, top 50 climb in ROCKFAX n England guide
gilbert - TR O/S - 17/Aug/09 with luke spiers

A classic, and certainly not basic at its grade. The first few moves which are unprotected are probably the hardest, a off balance sequence. Then up to the big break with good gear. Managed to slide in a RP5 as far as I could reach out left which appeared pretty solid but the traverse isnt as hard as it looks despite being on small dishes in the break. It's the top that spooked me a bit, you have to make a sort of 4b move with gear below your feet and then continue up easily. Nice climb.

Absolutely Fantastic climb. Edgy nervy and when protected well on my 2nd ascent with another climber solicited nothing but praise, for the lead and the protection. When I am feeling positive will lead it but when feeling a bit unfit will only top rope it
