|The Brown Wall
Approximately 100' to the right of the Reptile Butress is another... well, big brown buttress! You can't miss this one, 8 bolts take you up the left side of a brown prow.
8 bolts plus the anchor next to the dead tree.

This route is one of the very best at the Ridge. Steep and clean- technically engaging and continuous - this one is as good as they come .

Excellent technical movement on incredible rock. Superb! The mantel at the roof before the headwall is a tad easier for shorter folks.

I had more success on this climb than on many other routes at Thunder Ridge. I think it may have been because I was terrified of falling! My belayer was purposefully not looking at me, doing so would have caused him to stare directly into the sun! This is a good one for crisp temps.
One of my favorites at Thunder Ridge!

I broke a hold @ 6th bolt. Probably not any more difficult now though. Sweet gnar the whole way.
