Always check road conditions and peregrine closures Details
Route DescriptionTake the stairs from the parking lot and head straight to the top! Once on top, take an immediate right (west south west) and down a few yards to the NPS Information sign by the railing (not to be confused with the "Stay Inside The Railing" sign.......how novel!). Just over the railing and down 100 feet is the 'Patio Terrace'. Rappel (single rope) or be lower off from the sign and down to the terrace.
Start back up by climbing the initial steep face with good features (chickenheads and small cracks....good pro to 2") to a small ledge. Once at the ledge, scale the face, passing three bolts on a knobby face (5.8). Climbing the right side of the route steepens the rating to 5.10a. This is a good climb to do laps on.
Top rope gear: LONG slings to back up on the rock behind the railing and a 60 meter rope.
Leading: (3) quickdraws, small to medium gear (#0 Metolius helpful), a few slings for chickenheads/knobs
Be prepared to fight off the "tourons" and their bottomless questions and comments: "Hey! How do you get the rope back up?", "Are you getting ready to bungee jump?", "Why don't YOU obey the signs posted?", "Can I take a picture with you and my kids?" AAARGGGGGGG!!!!
