well place birch, testing for the smaller climber to finish a confident step required.

Led as far as the tree. After spending twenty minutes trying to make the move into the off width crack, I finally asked for a top rope. Of course, as soon as I'd made the move I realised it wasn't too bad and should've done it on lead. If you want to get any gear in the off width crack, bring something massive. Two stacked hexes would do it or a size 5 or 6 cam!

Caterpillar swim style through the crack! This was a brillant "traditional" thrutch!
