DescriptionAnother excellent technical face climb, Big Brother climbs a devious weakness up the beautiful central face of the Left Arrow. This line offers little straight-down pulling; much of the challenge comes in figuring out how best to sidepull, lieback, undercling and otherwise ooze up the cliff.
Begin by surmounting the slight overhang with interesting, and somewhat spooky protruding crystals and flakes. Once established on the hanging wall, snake along the fractured dyke, surmounting a small roof with little difficulty. Just before the end, the dyke vanishes, and the cliff face becomes more monolithic. The crux comes surmounting a small roof just before the anchor, with balancey moves on small holds.
