Description 

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.

Location 

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.

Protection 

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