Patriot Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Lower right part of Patriot Wall
This is a large prominent area above the White Wall. The most noticeable feature is a large blocky arete that you can actually see from parking lot poking up barely above the trees. I believe in the Dixie Cragger's Atlas this area is also referred to as Middle Wall.
This area is broken up into two sections with three or so established routes on the arete area and about 8 more on a disconnected sloper area. The best looking route seems to be on the arete area, a great looking crack called Super Crack (5.9, FA M. Crowder). There are some bolted routes and a few anchors in place. I think most routes could be led with trad and top roped. The area doesn't see a lot of traffic so most routes will probably need some cleaning just like below on the White Wall.

A good topo can be found here on Michael Crowders website coolclimbing.com/images/topos/...
Same directions as the White Wall. If you are at the Lowers just go right from the bottom of the lowers towards Pink Mountain. You should be able to pick up the trail that puts you above the White Wall and right at the Patriot Wall.
If you are coming up from the parking lot you can go all the way to Lowers and follow the above directions or if you take the somewhat less traveled shortcut trail off the main trail you can intersect the Pink Mountain trail in the gulley before you start up the hill into the boulder field below the lowers. Follow the Pink Mountain trail up the gulley till you run into the White Wall. Patriot Wall is on top. These trails can be hard to see once leaves and ground cover starts growing.

Super Crack is the obvious large left facing corner at the Patriot Wall Super Crack area. Start in the offwidth section at the bottom or go up the slabby unprotected face until it becomes more of a crack. Follow the crack until you reach an undercling section (crux). Bust out right and up around the corner. Swim up the dirty gully until you can find a suitable tree to belay from.This climb is often wet and as such doesn't get climbed too much. There are a few bushes that could use to be cleaned ...[more] Browse More Classics in GA

The Patriot Wall is the small crag above and to the climbers right of the White Wall. It's very overgrown since it hasn't had much use since the early 90's.
Edit to add: the Patriot Wall is considered a separate cliff from the Supercrack area, even though the Supercrack area does happen to be listed on MC's Patriot Wall topo.

Let's put some bolted anchors up on this wall. That will help give these fun routes more traffic and keep them clean.
