This east-facing brown wall sits at the upper end of Juniper Canyon. It's a bit of a grunt to hike in to but contains some excellent routes. A scrambling descent from the top is the V-shaped gully on the left (south) side of the wall, called the Gunsight. This gully separates the Brownstone Wall from the Rainbow Wall.
Follow the standard approach into Juniper Canyon, passing Rose Tower and Jackrabbit Buttress on your right. You should find a decent trail which heads up the drainage, the same approach as for the Rainbow Wall. Where you would turn left for the Rainbow Wall (and where the main drainage jogs left and you can see the Brownstone Wall directly above of you but still 500' higher), leave the main drainage and head right up a talus slope and then a long section of slickrock up a bowl to the base of the Brownstone Wall. It is also possible to stay in the main drainage longer (especially for Black Dagger which is the far left side of the Brownstone Wall) but this involves more bushwhacking. Total approach time is 1.5-2 hours.

Black Dagger 5.7+ 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b PG13 NV : Red Rock : ... : Brownstone Wall
This route is on the far left side of the Brownstone Wall and the approach takes about 2 hours. The route is in the sun most of the day so can be quite warm, although the 3rd and 4th pitch are in a recessed chimney and are shady except in the early morning.We had some difficulty locating the start of this route. If you head up slabs which lead to the center of the Brownstone Wall, you will have to traverse left quite a ways to get to the route, even going down a bit.
