Birchen Edge 19 June 2022 – Meet report

A warm and cloudy day on which the Castle Club went to Birchen.
A good turnout of members at Emma’s slab, which was new or at least little climbed for most. A good selection of routes from easier to harder grades, with members climbing most of the routes on the slab. The namesake route was a particular favourite for Gemma & Rosie, whilst Andy preferred the lofty heights of Crow’s Nest. The crag was busy with climbers, with numbers swelling as a group of excited younger climbers passed through on a bouldering / weaselling round of the crag.
After castle numbers reduced to a few we moved across to Sail Buttress where Ratline was boldy led by Nick followed by a jaunt up Top Sail, a lovely climb.
The day was ended or so we thought until Julian appeared, bringing some glorious sunshine and some additional climbing on Orpheus wall.
A really great day, thanks all! Matt. Photos by Rosie:
