DescriptionThis 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.
- * We haven't climbed any routes here yet so I don't have any route info to post. Please add any routes that you have good info on.**
A good topo can be found here on Michael Crowders website coolclimbing.com/images/top…
Getting ThereSame 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.
