Mike, I believe Tim Snyder and maybe Rodney Lanier did this one.

Edit: I stand corrected. Thanks for the clarification Tim.

I had nothing to do with this Mr. Brown. It was Rodeny Lanier and a former partner of mine whom I shared many early climbing adventures with, did this particular route.

I had thought it was a Lanier route; who was the other guy?

I'm surprised this climb hasn't received better ratings, I thought it was superb (unless I'm confusing this with something else.) Two bolts down low and two bolts up high w/good gear in between. There's also room for several variations in the mid-section of the climb. I thought moving into the finger crack was also really fun. Clipping that first bolt was kind of precarious for a shortly like me. Labeled as Unknown 5.11b in NC Select Climbs.
