Description Suggest change

Brinton's is perhaps the most classic among the many classic moderates at Devil's Lake. The elegance of the line, the interesting moves, and the exposure are unmatched.

Follow the main weakness on the left edge of the buttress. This will take you to a cramped alcove. From here, traverse to the right across good footholds, but miserable hand holds. Many consider this the crux. Protection for the traverse is "adequate."

After the traverse, climb straight up a short jam crack (crux #2) to a blocky, airy finish.

Protection Suggest change

Brinton's is a popular lead because the pro is pretty good. Bring nuts and cams, heavy on the 1-2 inch sizes.
