Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

Holier Than Thou 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  OR : Smith Rock : ... : Christian Brothers - West S...
This route is a second pitch above either Benedictine Punk (5.7) or Innocent Victim (10a). A very nice route with quality rock. It starts with a step-over trough and heads up a knobby face (hardest move maybe 10a and mostly 5.9?). At about 2/3rds up the slab turns overhung and the difficulties begin. Challenging reaches between horizontal pockets may remind you of Toxic, although the pockets are much narrower. Just before the anchors, the crux hits with technical moves on small holds. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR
