A hidden route, but one not to be missed.

Pat Tricks begins below a low bolt that protects the routes' technical crux. Move up the wall on hidden incuts and tricky moves to a solution pocket/bucket. Take a quick rest then finish off the technical crux by smearing out to a shallow left-facing flake/corner to your left. Protect this and take a plum line straight up passing a couple large horizontals and small overlaps.

From the small cedar, continue up the face past several more committing moves to the top. The route can be done as one, long, mega-pitch, or split into two by stopping at the small cedar with the ratty tat.

If you practice the art of sport climbing, you will enjoy this crimpy crux, if not, slip it into 5th gear and cruise through it...fast!


To the left of the Pats' Blue Ribbon Cave is a vertical Wall with several routes on it. Pat Tricks is marked by a low bolt and is the route closest to the sport route Pats' Blue Ribbon.


One bolt, and single rack up to a #2 Camalot.
