Description

This route is right across the corridor from the Inner Sanctum and is the farthest route to the left when facing the wall. Steep and some really funky moves make this route a great one. Get ready for some drop knees and strange body position as well as a crimpfest. The rock is a little loose, but for the most part the handsholds will stay.

Protection

Longer slingers for 2nd anchor at very top.

Ok little route. Not very long but definitely not a one move wonder. Rock is a little funky, but the key holds are good. If more people climbed this I think it would clean up nicely.

P.S. drop knees are not necessary. Aug 16, 2007

This is a fun route. Felt right on at 12a for the RP... the on-sight would be tough. This route has cool moves throughout and will clean up with time. Get on it!! Jul 4, 2013

I found this route to be oddly enjoyable. It's not particularly pleasing to look at, especially compared to the other lovely routes near by, but on a warm day, when those routes are baking in the sun, it was nice to come down to this shaded little crack and climb Brasserie.

The holds are hard to find, but once the beta is sorted, it went just fine. I'm leaving the suggested rating at 5.12a, though it felt quite cryptic on my exploratory burn, and I couldn't see how it was possibly 12a.

I think the grade may be accurate! The difficulty is finding the sequence, not actually executing it.

My entire party felt the same about this climb. It was not pleasing to look at, or particularly enjoyable to climb, but we all enjoyed it more than we expected.

Perhaps someone else can do Brasserie, will feel similarly, and can explain the phenomena better than I. Sep 24, 2018
