Description

The "backside" of Brogan contains a good selection of easier climbs, from 5.5 multipitch romps to steep 5.10 sport climbs. Get sun most of the day. The Tail and Opossum are features that are a continuation of the Brogan Spire formation on the uphill side.

Getting There

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.
