Description

This line starts with a (SDS) on the farthest right hand side of the main south wall. It then traverses diagonally left past intestine power moves that really test ones finger strength. After about 15 to 20 feet of climbing right you converge with "The Best Boulder Problem In Evergreen." You link the two section all the way to the summit. Pumpy and testy!!! Walk of right.

Maybe the hardest line at Three Sister!! If you want something that can offer you the full value V9, look no farther!! Send it!!

Location

From the 1st parking lot follow the Sisters trail until it meets the Ponderosa. head left (west) for about 50 yards. You will see the massive wall about 100 yards up slope to the north. Bush whack your way up the main south facing yellow looking wall.

Protection

Pads and spotters.

Jimmy Webb may have done the first ascent this July.... vimeo.com/12756314

Thomas Betterton repeated this line as well last night. He didn't comment on the grade, though. Really pumpy! Aug 26, 2010
It turns out by way of further investigation that the original start for "Under Cover Brother" is a large flake in the middle of the line I described. So be ready for more than V9 if you go for the far right corner S.D.S..

I have work the S.D.S. but have come up short every-time!!

As far as I know the S.D.S. from the corner has not been done yet... so any takers? Sep 12, 2009
