Terrace Tower, Brent's Hammer. On Terrace Tower in the Cirque of the Unclimbables in July, A. Mawson, D.

Lavigne, and J. Lavigne established a steep route on the southeast face. Their route, Brent s Hammer (200m, 5.11+), climbs mostly hand cracks and is approached by scrambling left up the ledges toward the loose gully below the face. The first pitch begins after you head up and right 5m into the gully, climbing an arching, right-facing corner. The initial four pitches range from 5.10- to 5.10+, with the final two being 5.11 +. The line receives plenty of sun and reportedly remains dry when other climbs in the area are wet. Descend via fixed rappels. Bring triples of hands- and small hands-sized cams. A 4" or 5" piece can be helpful on the final pitch.
