Description 

Patagonia Pile has two main faces worthy of attention - the popular and steep Patagonia Pile - East Face, home to many fine and difficult crack and face routes and the seldom visited Patagonia Pile - West Face with it's numerous moderate crack routes.

Getting There 

Most easily approached by hiking north past the east end of The Blob and heading slightly east once the open area is reached. The prominent overhanging east face makes a good landmark to aim for. The approach takes about 10-15 minutes from Hidden Valley CG.
