This is a large prominent area above the White Wall. The most noticeable feature is a large blocky arete that you can actually see from parking lot poking up barely above the trees. I believe in the Dixie Cragger's Atlas this area is also referred to as Middle Wall.

This area is broken up into two sections with three or so established routes on the arete area and about 8 more on a disconnected sloper area. The best looking route seems to be on the arete area, a great looking crack called Super Crack (5.9, FA M. Crowder). There are some bolted routes and a few anchors in place. I think most routes could be led with trad and top roped. The area doesn't see a lot of traffic so most routes will probably need some cleaning just like below on the White Wall.

  • * We haven't climbed any routes here yet so I don't have any route info to post. Please add any routes that you have good info on.**

A good topo can be found here on Michael Crowders website

Getting There 

Same directions as the White Wall. If you are at the Lowers just go right from the bottom of the lowers towards Pink Mountain. You should be able to pick up the trail that puts you above the White Wall and right at the Patriot Wall.

If you are coming up from the parking lot you can go all the way to Lowers and follow the above directions or if you take the somewhat less traveled shortcut trail off the main trail you can intersect the Pink Mountain trail in the gulley before you start up the hill into the boulder field below the lowers. Follow the Pink Mountain trail up the gulley till you run into the White Wall. Patriot Wall is on top. These trails can be hard to see once leaves and ground cover starts growing.

Rock Climbing Photo: Crack of My Ass - Patriot Wall

Crack of My Ass 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Georgia : Mount Yonah : Patriot Wall
Crack of My Ass is the obvious crack taking the tallest line in the left/middle of the lower right portion of the Patriot Wall. Start at a thin crack up to a ledge. Then follow the hand crack up and left to the top. The bouldery start is the business, the hand crack on the top is a casual romp with ample gear...[more]   Browse More Classics in Georgia

The Patriot Wall is the small crag above and to the climbers right of the White Wall. It's very overgrown since it hasn't had much use since the early 90's.

Edit to add: the Patriot Wall is considered a separate cliff from the Supercrack area, even though the Supercrack area does happen to be listed on MC's Patriot Wall topo.

The Patriot Wall has recently been cleaned. Well at least four routes in the middle have. Go down and check it out

Let's put some bolted anchors up on this wall. That will help give these fun routes more traffic and keep them clean.
