1 out of 5 stars Ultra Brewers

I did do the whole route...if simply for the adventure of it all and to complete the route in whole. The first pitch is the second most challenging lead of the day (5.8). The third pitch is about as chossy as the first two but does offer a crack up a corner which leads to much better rock above. The fourth pitch is better rock, but not overly sustained at the grade (5.7). The fifth pitch is what this route is all about but you will find yourself asking if the approach, dirty and loose climbing and descent are all worth it. (I led this pitch and no, it did not make up for it) A true 60m pitch of 5.8-9 crack and stem climbing in a limestone corner. The last pitch is a clean and short pitch to finish the route to the goat’s plateau above. With Jason W.

4 out of 5 stars Great route

Amazing what a bit of know how gives you, I was very happy with this route, we avoided the frist two pitchs and took the gully just to the left in which you had to go behind and up large chockstones, comparied to the rat shit it was good. Over all rock quailty is very good, the first 5.9 pitch is good but the pins above the pinical require a steady head, the second 5.9 pitch is quite fun as well with easy climbing above to the top. The only pitch that was not nice was the scrambley pitch below the crux. We took 2hrs from parking lot to base of route, 4 hrs on route, 2 hrs to climb Brewer Buttress and 4hrs walk out down the backside not the gully.
