Patience is on the south side of Pawn. This is the downhill side. Look for a bolt way off the deck. The first 40 feet or so to the bolt is fairly solid 5.7 friction climbing. Not good to do unless you are used to the rock. I gave this climb a vs for very serious, although the protection becomes quite adequate upon clipping the first bolt.

This climb has been rated both 5.7 and 5.8, but make sure that you are solid at the grade. Take your time (patience) and have fun. Fixed anchors at the top.


Quickdraws. The first bolt is 40 feet up, so be careful.

The gear for this is 2 quickdraws, and a little something for the anchor.

The original name for this route was spelled "PATIENTS" which more accurately describes the consequences of a fall from almost anywhere on this route.
