The Brothers Direct Finish** E1 5b

Adjacent Climbs
<< The Brothers
 
What Ever >>
23m. As for "The Brothers" pitch 2a. 70 feet 5b. From the belay above pitch 1 of the brothers, move right of the overhang to the foot of a crack system and climb this to an obvious undercut at an overlap. A long reach gains rounded holds and easier ground. The line shown as Brothers Direct number 76 in the new (2010) guide is actually Oblatron E3 and is considerably harder and poorly protected

An excellent route did it in one big 47m pitch I'm enjoying these big pitches on this wall at the mo. Nothing went very smoothly got confused where to go on first pitch on brothers the off width crack felt hard for 4b then got confused where I was ment to be as the picture in the guide book is wrong was on the E3 for abit. Glad I took guide book with me soon sorted it out with the description. When Anna came to second, it started to rain so I had to abb off using a very spikey bush and leaving a sling lots of cuts. All good fun

Mike led p1 VS. Top pitch felt steady, the move from the undercut felt ok and it's very well protected with wires in the flake in in the wall. Didnt think i was going to get on this, but the line looked good!

Very nice climbing. Crux is protected by nuts behind a thin and hollow sounding flake, wouldn't fancy taking the fall...

Lead both pitches. Great climbing. The line for the route (76) in the guide picture is wrong and caused some confusion. Got the right line in the end.

P2. Good E1 on this bit of the crag. Rough rock and enjoyable. Dont let the guide description of slopeyness put you off its not that bad.

CoffeePot led P1 of The Brothers (which I thought was pretty hard for VS!). The direct finish was lovely, though it is quite a reach.
