First Cliff

Description 

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.


Getting There 

It is about 50 yards right of the Far Left crag.

Featured Route For First Cliff
Breathless Arete

Breathless Arete 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : First Cliff
This is a great arete climb that starts off the loose ledge atop the first pitch of Patricia Lake Grack and makes for an excellent finish to that climb or for Sons of Liberty.After a tricky start (side-pull the arete), hold your breath as you climb past an extremely wobbly flake. 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
