50m. A great wander. Should only be attempted at very quiet times as it crosses loads of popular climbs. Start up The Promenade and traverse right at the ledge. Reverse the Anchor Traverse to reach Hollybush Gully. Climb the traverse of Powder Monkey Parade into the cleft of Polaris Exit. Reverse this into Admiral's Gully then follow the obvious ledge across the Trafalgar Slab to finish up Trafalgar Wall.

Ticklists: Froggatt to Black Rocks (BMC) - The Grade List, Eastern Peak Grit 100 VD- VS, All trad climbs at Birchen Edge.

Fun, and didn't get in anyone's way, despite bank holiday traffic

Fell off the traverse on the first pitch. The rest was lovely.

Split into three pitches to minimise rope drag & maximise fun. I lead 1 & 3. John lead the Powder Monkey Traverse pitch.

Technically onsight I guess, but I've previously climbed all the routes this one crosses. Very nice moves over good rock, definitely one to recommend (for a quiet day).

Got too cold and come off reversing the Anchor Traverse

Led P1, belaying in the chimney of Admiral's Progress owing to serious rope drag! A fun, if potentially rather antisocial expedition.

A dawn raid on Birchens- reversing the Anchor Traverse is the physcological crux.
