Start: Take off from the Snotter Camp up the easy ramp just left of the water drums and climb easily for 55mm shared with Timerity and Another Fck’n Time.

Pitch 2: 17 (25m). Climb up steeply but easily the very hard quartzite rock and diagonal your way to stance in the obvious deep recess.

Pitch 2: 20 (20m). Climb up the right wall of the recess and crank on to the arete. Continue to the overhang above and move left to climb more easily to a ledge with bolted anchors on the last Timerity Abseil.

Pitch 3. 18 (50m). Climb directly up above the bolts to the overlap and crank through on the right to a large ledge. Climb the grey-black arete on the right side (in common with Timerity) to below the bushy gulley. Move left and climb the left leaning ramp to a large ledge. After placing a directional walk left to the abseil bolts on Timerity.

Pitch 4: 18 (22m). Climb the left leaning ramp past the overhang and then step right to attain a left leaning crack. Climb this for a metre or two and then leave the crack to climb up the face to a small standing ledge.

Pitch 5: 25(23m). Climb up the slightly left leaning grey break to where the rock becomes yellow and orange to an obvious under-cling. Do tricky move up and right to the overhang. Place small good cams and move left two metres. Crank the crux on thin holds and continue to a good rail. (Small cams). Finish easily to stance in the shady walk-off cave on blocks.

Pitch 6:  ???26 (40) WORK in progress. The Brotality Roof.

Walk left about 40m and stance at the same place as Timerity 6th pitch. Find your way to the roof and fight your way through it with or without aid moves.
