Easy trad romp to the disconnected blocks below the two bolts. Mantle the ledge. Clip the bolts and head to the anchors.


Route is located right after the offering. It starts in a right leaning short dihedral. It continues over the bulges you see above your head.


Small to medium cams and nuts, two bolts at top.

Since Bruise Brothers is good in the rain, it can get really crowded on those rainy days. This line is a good bet to be open a crowded day. I found the climbing easy. I only used four pieces of gear, and didn't bother with the two bolts towards the top. Definitely lots of runners necessary to avoid rope drag.
