Description

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.

Protection

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

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. Jun 30, 2014

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. Jun 12, 2006
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. May 23, 2002
