Location 

From the 1st parking lot take the Sisters Trail to it's 2nd junction with the Ponderosa Trail. At the junction you will see some small low quality blocks in front of your face and if you look up and left (WEST) you will see the "Brothers Lookout."

From here start bush whacking while staying right or (EAST) paralleling the EAST side slabs and fins of the "Brothers Lookout." Stay fairly low on the hill side. Around 100-150 yards slowly begin to make your way up hill (WEST). As the main face and obvious hill side and slabs that make up the EAST Side of "Brothers Lookout" start to go out of view start keeping a sharp eye for "The Sausage Nome Boulder." You are going to be looking to your left or (WEST) when searching out this sweet heart. With a little looking you will find this gem soon.

Note: If you run into "The Energy Wall" than you have gone to far. But your general height/level on the EAST side slope is about right. Good luck!!

Description 

This is a (R)-(L) traverse on the lower horizontal crack/seam system which finishes by topping out on "Mighty Nome" which is the left most problem found on the wall.

Start (S.D.S.) on good crimps and simply work your way across the wall!!

Protection 

Pads and a spot.
