Fat Pat is a Pat Fleming test piece. A great problem and the namesake for the Boulder. It is well worth the hike and is not often climbed. As of 10/12/15 there is a fort made out of trees covering this block. Should be cleared out soon. As stated before this is on the top problems at The Rock Maze.

Getting There 

Hike past the main area and continuing onto the Salza Boulder and Ericas Arête. This Boulder will be in the next cluster over and is the start to the East side problems.

Climbing Season
