The Brothers Direct Finish** E1 5b
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

Led the direct finish correctly this time, instead of following Oblatron as in the new guide! Really nice climbing, good gear and a reachy move that isn't that reachy.

Supposed to the warm up climb but it went a bit wrong - backed off Leading P1 when I saw the offwidth, and than seconded up E3 as we went way off route!

Attempted to climb the line shown in the 2010 CC guide. Got two thirds of the way up but backed off (soon after the pro ran out) and finished up the normal route. Thought about trying the line shown as Oblatron in the 2010 CC guide but was wary of getting committed on an E3 (the irony). All very confusing – and that’s before you try to work out where What Ever goes?

Independent finish in CC guide.

Fairly steady climbing but felt a bit bold towards the top. Lovely rough rock. Not sure about confusion with Oblatron. Definitely not an E3

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

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

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.
