Description

The Brier Patch is the first wall you'll see as you descend from the ridge down into UEF. It looks impressive but is a bit broken up by ledges so routes on the wall aren't very consistent or sustained, but the wall does overhang a little bit. As a testament to this, we walked by this wall for nearly two years before finally establishing any routes on it. Contributing to the lack of route development on this wall is the huge patch of thorny bushes at the base. There is probably more potential on the right side of the wall but bring your leather work gloves, long sleeved jacket and clippers so you can whack a path to the base.

Getting There

As you approach via the approach trail this is the first wall you'll encounter. Either cross the stream on the downed log or ford the stream straight to the wall.
