Ascent Trip Report

Parked partway up the road to the lookout tower on Brother #4. We then located the old trail that went to Brother #3. There's a junction at the last switchback going up #3. This abandoned trail goes to the saddle between #2 and Brother #3. From here, it's easy cross-country to the summit of #2. We next headed off the summit towards Brother #1, the most remote peak of the bunch. No trail to this peak that we could spot, but cross-country travel was not too difficult. Just a little bushwhacking and working around a few easy rocky outcroppings on the south ridge. The summit rocks are partly surrounded by trees, so the view is not as good as the other summits of the Four Brothers.
