Aubrey running it out on the start of Patio Direct...


Climb the face and crack on the corner to the ledge below the roof halfway up. There, pull the right side of the roof and head up and left to more crack and face. From there, head up and slightly right to the anchor. Great rock.


On the Patio Wall, this route starts down and left of the raised ledge, in a crack leading up to the ledge capped by a roof.


Pro to 3.5". 2 bolt anchor. Rap, lower, or hike off in the gully to the left.

Begin on the left side of the arete near the cross. Climb 15-20 feet of unprotected 5.8+ish to a horizontal where you can get solid pro. Continue on easy ground to the huge ledge.

Read the plaque on the ledge for a fallen climber. (Are you freaked out yet?) Step over to the right side of the ledge and work in some creative gear. Pull over the roof on solid holds and enjoy the exposure. Angle right to a two bolt anchor.
