Birchden Wall*** none 5b
[Birchden Wall, 3 kb]Start on a little step and climb the groove with difficulty to a good ledge using a good handhold found in the break just above your head. Rest a while before going straight up an obvious crack to the top.

Excellent; best route of the day. After first moves, all becomes a lot more obvious. Moves up to first break not at all obvious.
