Left Twin Brother, Ghetto Brother. Over six days in late October, Eric Draper, Bryan Bird, Kirsten Kremer, and I established the 1,700-foot Ghetto Brother (VI5.10 A3, 11 pitches). The route follows dihedral features just right of center on the spoon-shaped northwest face of the Left Twin Brother, approximately 200 meters left of The Promised Land. The nature of the climbing is typical Zion adventure wall style. Supplies were shuttled up the lower slabs on fixed line. The last five pitches overhang. Descent is made by rappelling the route, leaving fixed rope on the steep pitches to get back to the anchors.
