Start directly underneath a small flakey bulge in the middle of the right side of the face. Make a thin slab move (crux) just before the flake. Grab the flake then head up through some horizontals to a face left of the crack

Resist the urge to reach out right for the huge pocket jug in the crack. Stay on the face and out of the crack entirely for that matter. You kind of have to stick to the line to make it a 5.9


Head to the Patriot Wall proper (Super Crack area), then down and right to this portion of the wall. It is directly above and right of the White Wall. This area is called the Middle Wall in Dixie Craggers

Get down by walking off down and to the right


Standard rack. No anchors. Belay from tree 10 ft back from the top of the climb. PG-13 because you climb through the crux with no gear.
