This is the main wall of the four Patricia Bowl crags. Most routes are two pitches, but some on the right side are done in one. Many of the best pitches are actually the second ones. One must usually climb a lesser quality first pitch (sometimes hard to distinguish) to access the awesome splitters found on the second. You can rap off all pitches with a single 60-meter rope.
It is about 50 yards right of the Far Left crag.

Then make some fun lieback moves off the arete to a huge jug which you then mantle. The exposure and incredibly cool climbing make this one of most unique climbs on the cliff....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
