Harder going down than up on this one!

It should be noted that a lot of people use the tree (near the top of Blood Brothers) to descend. A bit of a fire pole slide!

I think this is actually a pretty fun line that can stand on it's own as not "just the downclimb". It's worth noting that a lot of people traverse right on the slopey lip to the jug on the right instead of heading directly up from the start. Do this before you get on top of the boulder some other way!
