BETA PHOTO: Velvet Fist - Patriot Wall

Description 

Starts on slab to right of Super Crack. Follow two bolts up slab and pull small roof past more bolts and continue up towards cedar tree. It is pretty hard to top out without using the cedar tree as it has grown to intrude on the exit over the years. This is actually a really good, albeit short, climb when it is cleaned up. Doing the exit clean without the tree would likely be in the hard 5.12 range at minimum. Although the cragger gives this route a 5.12a, consensus puts it at the upper 5.11 range. This route deserves more traffic than it gets.

Location 

Upper white wall. Right of super crack.

Great addition to the Mt Yonah page. Just for clarification Velvet Fist is technically on the Patriot Wall just above White Wall. There is a Patriot Wall area if you'd like to move the route there.
