Beech Tree Wall (Birch Tree Wall)* HS 4b
[Alex eyeing up Birch Tree Wall, 2 kb]14m. A short crack leads to the right side of the ledge. Head right up the face (awkward start) finishing just right of the holly. © ROCKFAX
The crack and flake has some good moves, but is a bit scrapy. <Appears in the current BMC guide as Birch Tree Wall. Apparently the FA called it Beech and that's how it appeared in the 1951 Stanage guide. Subsequent BMC guides have called it Birch, except the 2002 (grey) edition >

Great climb...especially if you're 5'6" or less as it creates more interesting moves due to lack of reach. I think anyone taller will maybe find it a bit of a doddle and I think I'd drop it down to a 4a for taller peeps.

Up to the first ledge is fine, but getting to the flake would have been too intimidating until I managed to find somewhere to get gear in on the left. Once you get the flake, the rest of the climb comes easy.

not much gear until you're a fair way up
