Tony Rapping off of Antebellum (12a) at Bell Buttr...

Above the tree crossing at the "Patio" boulder problem. At the right side of the Patio traverse is a flaring hand-size crack that turns thin below a roof. Climb the crack with good gear( the crux) to roof. Undercling right and up a face (hard) past 3 bolts. Past the face, protect with medium friends and climb to 2-bolt anchor. Classic.


This is a mixed route that takes hand-size protection and quickdraws for the bolts.

This seemed like the best, and hardest, of the routes down on the Patio. I would give it 2 stars. This is a fun little crag to climb on, good shade 'til early afternoon. No offense, and a great service putting these routes in, but the grades seemed a bit soft on all these routes.

This one seemed about the right grade, but by merit of its size. I thought it was a pretty awkward size for my hands. Bigger = better, I believe.

Another good strenuous route at this crag. You can choose between bigger gear in better rock and more obstruction or smaller gear in less quality rock at the start - and this is a pretty key decision. The book says the crux is at the thin crack roof, but I thought this section was a lot easier than the start. A bit on the dirty side up higher, but not too bad. Well worth doing.
