Description

This is a nice little crag with a good collection of moderate sport routes to choose from. Most of the routes are not overhanging and tend to be more vertical. The far end of the wall is host to a number of fun moderates ranging from 5.10a to 5.11a. Bruise Brothers is definitely worth checking out.

Getting There

From the main parking area, take the South trail behind the barn and down into the valley. At the bottom of the hill head right, cross the bridge, and make another right to follow a wide trail up an old logging road. Continue straight, passing the trail split for Sunnyside, a couple minutes further you'll come across the trailhead for the left side of Bruise Brothers, followed by the main Bruise Brothers wall a 100 feet later. Continue another minute to reach the right side climbs and the trailhead for a waterfall.
