The west side of the Christian Brothers is a pale comparison to the east side but still has a few worthwhile routes and way reduced crowds. The area has shade in the morning and sun in the afternoon. Good in the morning on hot days and in the afternoons on colder sunny days.
The most direct approach to the area is via Asterisk pass. Once over the pass, veer right and go though the slot between The Awl and the main rock face. Christian Brothers-West Side is just beyond this. You can also reach the area via Misery Ridge or the trail around the southern tip.

Begins with a savage intro boulder problem that would go at v11 in its own right, where you must wrestle a steep double arete, tossing between terrible holds. You get a brief shake in this steep portion prior to tackling the exit v7 boulder problem. From there you have an excellent mid 12 arete to the...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
