Brothers' Under Belly Cave aka Bikini Cave Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Photo beta for the "Brothers Under Belly Cave...
This area offers some nice steep climbing. It's best climbed in the spring or fall. The feature of the cave is more attractive than the stability of some of the holds found on this wall. The rock is marginal. The falls are bad, but the features that the stone offers are very attractive. I am only posting two problems at this wall although more exist. If you're in the area, give it a look... you might just dig the cave!!! I know I did!!
From the 1st parking lot follow the Sisters Trail for a few hundred yards or until you come to the Ponderosa Trail junction just below and to the EAST of the "Brothers' Lookout" formation. Turn west (Left) onto the Ponderosa Trail for about 30-50 yards before you began to head NORTH (right) up the steeping slope. Try to stay as EAST as you can so you enter the 2nd Tier gully at a gradual pace. The "Brothers' Under Belly Cave" is located up (West). It's an obvious mini-cave on your right. Enjoy.

This is a great winter place. Used to call it the Bikini Cave. Just above the Cave, you will find a ledge that has one of the great winter traverses on it. This area is called the Beach. I've spent many hours just gazing out over the valley and pumping out on the traverse and other Brother gems.
