Description 

As written in Vertical Heartland, " it's the 40-foot high wall beneath a grassy ledge system (AKA The Upper Meadow) with trees. At the left end of the wall, a 4th class chimney up and right of a water runnel leads to the Upper Meadow for setting TR's. The oft-traveled routes on this wall are part of an on-going effort to provide more beginner-to moderate-level climbing opportunities for clients of Vertical Heartland Climbing School. By the time you read this, there may be another route or two in between Patriot and Leprechaun.
