DescriptionThe entrance to Brownie Basin is guarded by a 400 foot high granite peak on the south that offers several multi-pitch offerings. The camping is good and the views are great. There is quality bouldering at Laverty Lakes as well as great swimming.
P1 - Find the lowest point on the rock slab face, follow shallow cracks and edges upward for 120 feet.
P2 - From the belay ledge, move right and follow broken ledges upward for another 100 feet.
P3 - move up and and then right for 50 feet or so, traversing a vertical slab for 50 feet, then straight up to the summit knife edge ridge.
