Home to about 10 climbs, Upper Patina Wall is a bit more difficult to get to than the Lower.

Getting There 

Take the climber's path across the street from the AT parking. You'll walk through flat, open forest. After about 5 min (or less) there will be a rock step, and shortly thereafter the trail will split. (Little Crack Land and Lost River Crag are "straight ahead".)

Turn right for Bull Pen and Lower & Upper Patina Walls (and all other minor Lost River Crags.) You'll reach the very obvious slab of the Bull Pen in a few minutes. Continue up and right, steeply at times, to the base of Lower Patina Wall.

From the right side of Lower Wall, take the obvious, but very steep "path", with the occasional "fixed rope assist" [does using this make all the routes at least A-0??? (joke!)]. Just before arriving at Upper Patina you'll pass the base of the climb Rib Rider (Photo, 5.6 200 ft). Continue up and through the boulders to the base of the wall. (Photo)
