Birdlime Crack* S 4a
8m. This is a great crack line that takes good gear so well protected over the slight overhang. Great climb and keep fairly dry even if it's been raining although the ledge at the top can then be slippy and needs care if walking off from there.

Nice wee route, used it as an a route up to platform after backing off the first pitch of Coldstream Corner. Followed it up by backing off the second pitch of Coldstream Corner. Great Tits nesting deep in the in the crack seemed undisturbed by climbers.

Ok but definately tough for the grade. I'd give it Severe. At the top use the right facing crack at ground level about 2m to the right and a no. 2 nut placement in a slot behind the bracken about 1m right of the top out.
