Description

On the face before it gets steep with the overhangs.

This climb has a polished start, but, it's a great beginner lead. Clean falls, great hands/feet make for a fun climb.

My second lead ever. This climb has a polished start, but, it's a great beginner lead. Clean falls, great hands/feet make for a fun climb. May 26, 2009

Lots of good moves + holds. Rather sustained, my arms felt plenty worked when I reached the top.

For me the most intimidating move was just above the 3rd bolt, going up in faith that I'd find something more positive soon.

Before that, making the clip on the 3rd bolt felt a bit scary until I found an incut pocket somewhere among the large but smooth holds. Still more exciting was arriving at the top anchor foolishly with no gear ready to make a quick clip (I guess I was assuming there would a nice stance) - at last I found a sort of right arm-elbow lock to hold me while I sorted out my anchor-making gear.

(It did not strike me that the start was notably polished, nor that slippery holds were an issue low down.) May 28, 2012

After climbing Birdsboro for a few years I can still say this is a true classic. Great psych route and confidence booster for friends that are just beginners. May 20, 2014
