Description 

An anti-classic of sorts, a squeeze chimney leading up to the top of an obvious pillar.


Location 

Located to the right of the trail towards "Critics Choice", up the right side of the obvious pillar.


Protection 

Though finger size gear is available behind the flake, place at your own risk as it may topple the entire first half of the route. Rappel from two bolt anchor.

This route was put up in memory of Brutus of Wyde, an inspiration to wyde climbers everywhere.

Just wanted to say that I lead this over Spring Break. Definitely hung all over the bottom section with numerous pieces of pro in the crack behind the giant flake. My friend got on it on TR and came down when she said she felt the flake moved. It makes me a little uneasy I was on a route rated 'X'. Was a fun climb at the time though.

It should be noted that while Pamela and i did establish the route as a memorial for Brutus; we did not mount the wheel or the flags. A not to be named individual mounted the shrine, and neither Pam or i was present for it.


Glad you guys liked the route!
