Chris Banks and Eric Forney
nuts, single set of cams to 3"
Brush Hog climbs a thin R-facing corner immediately left of Mr. Clean.
Twenty feet of easy climbing reaches a point where the wall obviously steepens. Reach out left, around the corner, to place a 1.5" cam with a long sling, the only bomber pro before the crux. A good red alien can also be placed in a shallow slot on the left wall of the dihedral, but this placement would be difficult using standard width cams. Technical stemming and liebacking (crux) reaches a small roof midway up the route. Skirt this on the left and continue with 5.7 or 5.8 climbing to an excellent hand crack finish.
Brush Hog required approximately 8 hours of cleaning prior to the first ascent, all done by one individual, hence the route name.
