12m. From the grassy niche, take the bulging right-hand crack which is steep and awkward.
I thought this fairly straightforward S,4a, and I mostly only did it because my mate had a girlfriend called Emman, and she must have been seriously deluded.
Did this yesterday, anything resembling a hold either being covered in snow or just damp. Very enjoyable first lead after a long break, and we had Birchen to ourselves. Nice route too.
Kind of statifying in a thrutchy kind of way, but not really my cup of tea at all. I suspect its a bit easier if you're less than 6'4" too, as you will probably be a lot less constricted than I was!
Another near definitive S 4a on this bit of the crag. Nice climbing with plenty of interest near the top. If you decline to jam, it will probably feel a lot less secure !
