Description:

about ten pitches of steep limestone climbing. The first couple pitches are contrived and loose, but the quality quickly improves. There are airy positions on this route despite the grade. Popular on weekends. Continuing up Ultra Brewers makes for a fun longer day.

3 out of 5 stars Good route for the grade

Diid the linkup, we climbed this route in 2hrs in 4 pitchs with a bit of simule climbing, found it more of a runout sport route that a trade climb but was enjoyable

4 out of 5 stars Brewers Buttress

Only took 2 hours to get to hut the night before, ACC says 3-5.hardly worth the hut except for the experience of it, cool little place. On the route 5.5 hours, got lost in the snow on the summit in regards to descent. That sucked. 5 mini raps down once we found it. The 5.6+ and the last pitch which was the best two of the day. Neither were very difficult. We did the route in 10 vs 13 pitches. Super weather.

fun, my first experience simul-climbing. Learned the hard way why the stronger/faster guy should go second...

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

It's a long bloody hike but a worthy route. We started block leading but I ended up leading each pitch as we were being efficient that way.
It's a 13 pitch route but some pitches can be linked.
Generally good quality rock after the first two pitches and great climbing with good partners.
