The Brown Wall was the start of climbing at Thunder Ridge. Steve Cheyney led Reptile - 5.10 and the rest as they say....
Lots of sun here. Gator skin texture of the stone is awesome. Several routes are in this area.

Getting There 

The Brown Wall is up behind the lower canyons. Most easily reached by climbing up out of the back end of the Wasp Canyon.
