The Tube. It's about to get hard...

Description 

Pat and Jack is an excellent crag that is often bypassed for the more popular crags nearby, but it hosts a number of superb routes that are well worth the short walk. This is a steep wall, that has a number of knobs along it which allows the splitter cracks to be done at slightly more moderate grades. Some pitches to try include Sherrie's crack, Knob Job and the Tube. Similar weather as for Cookie Cliff with lots of sun for fall / winter climbing.


Getting There 

Find a parking area off Hwy 140, west of the Cascade Creek bridge and park on the south side of the road. Cross 140 and find a climbers trail that heads directly up the hill. The trail will lead to Knuckleheads, and Knob Job.

Desperate Straights corner. First belay at the oak tree in the corner after an interesting and strenuous pitch. Then straight up in side to a challenging block in a chimney. Slick rock abounds!

I have found Pat and Jack to be one of the most reliable winter crags in Yosemite. The day after a storm, when every crack at the Cookie is seeping water, most routes at Pat and Jack will already be dry.
