Description 

This North by Northwest facing wall is a hidden jewel in the Cemetery. The dark brown patina and mostly overhanging formation is the home of many quality .11's and a few .10's, with a 5.6 at the far right end if you feel the need for a quick warm-up. The rock is very solid with the typical grainy bite wherever the patina isn't, and nice edges throughout. The bolts of the first two routes are fairly old with rusted angle hangers, but quite solid. All the routes have bolted chain anchors.

Getting There 

Finding the Brown Corridor is not too hard; getting there is a bit more tricky. From the central area within the Cemetery, walk south just past the twin Pillars of Hope and Despair. (If going directly to the Brown Corridor from the parking area, stay on the trail as for the approach to the Pillar of Despair) From here, you can either head southeast over a boulder field (easy scrambling with little up and down movement) or head southwest, as if leaving the Cemetery, but pick up the trail leading south. This takes you to the top of the rise where you then turn left and continue down to the east. From here you will see the Corridor ahead and slightly to the left. Be advised that this second approach takes you along the edge of private property (the area known as Deadman's Point, now closed to climbing) so be careful to stay on the trail and not wander to the south. From the bottom of the small ravine, look for the cave to the right of the Corridor. Enter here and either climb up to the left or crawl straight through the hole (easier, but you and your pack won't fit at the same time), climbing up and back to where you can walk out into the Corridor to the right.
