Description Suggest change

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. Christian Brothers is split into an East side and a West side. Currently the most popular, and most developed is the East side, though there are multiple good routes on the West side as well.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the obvious trails along the front side past the Dihedrals to the 300ft tall towers and cliffs just before Asterisk Pass. to get to the West side, climb up and over Asterisk Pass, or walk around the Smith Rock Group to the back side.
