Description 

A beautiful 400' tall chunk of granite. Characterized by reddish brown stone and great patinaed features. There is slight exfoliation and lichen common to most of Cody granite, although this wall is cleaner than most. It faces North and a bit West.

Getting There 

Walk West down the Lower Dam Road, after you pass through the short tunnel turn left. Two large boulders in the river create a constriction forcing the river underneath and creating a great crossing point. Scramble across the river and find the trail at the base of the Cellular Service Wall. Follow this trail West toward the dam for 10 minutes to the base of the Brown Wall.

Featured Route For The Brown Wall

Sundowner 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  WY : Cody : ... : The Brown Wall
Follow the wide groove. Lower angle and short but really good climbing. The crux seems to be after the second clip but is fairly continuous until you top out. This is the only 'climbing' option to reach the ledge, other wise scramble up the gully 75 feet to the right. This route could be set up as a top rope as well by using the scramble and then back tracking the ledge to reach the chains. Also a rappel option to get down from the Brown Wall ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
