The Brig is a small area located down below the main spine on the east side of the the ridge. The trees offer shade in the morning, and the rolling of the sun offers shade in the afternoon.

Getting There 

The Brig is located directly below a bolted route on the main spine with two bolts to a two rap hanger anchor. Look for a trail leading downhill just south of this route that takes you down and over a few fallen trees to the base of the routes.

Thanks so much for developing this are and posting it here. Only had time to get on one route at The Brig this weekend (Slippery Slope), but all three lines look really good.

These routes are nice short warm-ups, if they were on the beaten path they would get lots of traffic.
