Another seldom done and underrated route at Fern, The Brawn Wall climbs as nicely as it looks. Start up the shallow dihedral and pump out right to the arete clipping 3 bolts. Plug in good gear from a pumpy stance at the arete. Quickly figure out how to climb the right side of the arete, you can place a purple tcu on the face if you are feeling the burn or just make a long move up and right to the horizontals below the overhang. Good gear here then thug over the bulge to a stance. Climb the fun crack that trends up and slightly left to a two bolt anchor at the very top. This climb has good rock and offers up a variety of climbing with an awesome, technical crux.


Approaching from Fayette Station Rd. 82, A few minutes past the Popular "wild seed" sport climb you will come to a striking, beautiful white corner with 3 bolts arching up and right.


Standard rack of cams, double up the mid sizes. Bolted anchor.
