Description Suggest change

The "backside" of Brogan contains a good selection of easier climbs, from 5.5 multipitch romps to steep 5.10 sport climbs. Get sun morning to mod afternoon, but some routes are shaded earlier. The Tail and Opossum are features that are a continuation of the Brogan Spire formation on the uphill side.

Getting There Suggest change

The most common approach takes the trail toward Brogan Spire's North Face, then crossing over a 4th class notch between Brogan Spire and Mini Half Dome. This involves climbing a chimney, then descending a polished water groove. Another good approach option is to take a trail that stays low along the canal and walk around the base of the Mudpile then up the hill.
