Checking out Melon Patch

Some areas require a guide.

Description 

Crux is at the bottom, then you follow jugs up the gently overhanging face.

Location 

This climb is on the west face and very hard to miss. The obvious tall line of huecos running up the wall facing the closed road.

Protection 

pads and spotters, very high with bad landing.

sweet jugs, multiple knee bars including a no hands near the top, not that they are necessary. Beware the hollow flake at the top.
