Looking north into The Outback from Hidden Valley Campground, Patagonia Pile is easily seen as the formation having the highest summit and a noticably overhung east face. Sunny in the morning, shady and cool in the afternoon, this face doesn't have much in the way of warmups, but a stack of fun 5.11's await any who make the five minute hike up. Highlights include No Shirt Needed (5.11a) and Jugline (5.11c).

Getting There 

If approaching from Hidden Valley Campground, head straight north past the Iron Door Cave. Easy boulder hopping leads to the mostly flat base of the east face.

Lieback left through the large feature to a ledge. Consider backcleaning gear through this section, as one moves 10' or so right on the ledge. One could do an alternate, more direct start by climbing the beginning of Jugline. A very thin move or two leads to large holds (the taller you are, the easier). The protection is at the base of the ledge (Red Alien or equiv), a fall complicated by the pro through the lieback could be messy (PG, but not R).A sequence of hand/thin finger jams leads through...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
