The Christian Brothers are a large group of towers that lie between the Dihedrals and Asterisk Pass. The first routes put up in this area led to the tops of the towers, but in the last few decades the focus has been on single-pitch climbs around the base. The rock here is very similar to that of the dihedrals-- perfect, in other words. The right side of the Brothers is home to a handful of Smith's most challenging routes including Rude Boys (5.13c) and Scarface (5.14a).
Follow the obvious trails along the front side past the Dihedrals to he 300ft. tall towers and cliffs just before Asterisk Pass.

The dynamic redpoint crux (V4) awaits you at a bulge just after the third bolt. Several sequences will work through this section off the hang, but take care to find the best sequence, as the...[more] Browse More Classics in OR
