3 out of 5 stars Beautiful sunny day in April

We started on Birdie party and it felt hard today. Not sure why. Maybe because this was my 4th day in a row???

We traversed across to MF anchors thinking that we would do pitch two...I was too tired. The traverse is fun and airy on big rail, with thin feet.

5 out of 5 stars Birdie Party

Followed Brad84 up this in 2007, finally got around to leading it myself. What an outstanding route with fantastic moves from the ground to the GT. The hand traverse that ends pitch 1 is ridiculous, and the roof crux of pitch 2 is great athletic climbing. The bolt anchors midway up the first pitch are useless, really should be chopped, as should the absurd 70m toproping anchor (4 old cams) just above the roof on pitch 2.
