Description

Start on the far left with an undercling. You can be standing and can be in a no handed rest. Traverse right using underclings. You get to a no handed rest before using more underclings up. Fall into sloper with right hand and left handed crimp to drop to better feet. Traverse right and up slightly to resting position with good undercling and crimp. Reach far right to gaston, move left hand to okay crimp, drop foot, match hands while leaning right, and gain good right hand semi-undercling. Get a high foot, stand up, and traverse right with sloping crimps. Slap right to good stance. Climb to top on good holds. At the top, use a good left foot to rise to top. The small tree area towards the top is off. A fall from the upper section will suck.

Most of the feet are smears for the climb. The topping out feels great. The holds and feet are okay but need more traffic. The hardest parts are crossing the sections where you would want to continue up the underclings.

Location

Take the west parking lot to the Sister's trail. From there, take a left where The Brothers Lookout is. Stay right at the next split, and the boulder will be on the right. You can't miss it. This problem starts on the left of the wall.

Protection

Pads. Spotters would be good if available. If not, eh. Most of the problem is under 14 feet.
