Patience Face

Patience Face (5.12a); FA: Paul Glover, Matt Samet (first lead: Derek Peavey) 2012: This is the third from the left of the five sport climbs on the north face of Dinosaur Rock, down off the switchbacks along the Mallory Cave trail. It shares the first five bolts with The Shaft before stepping right onto the wide black streak/tufa feature, which it follows past another nine bolts all the way to the top of the wall. Various cruxes are interspersed with 5.10 and 5.11 climbing, as well as lots of “pod” rests. 70-METER ROPE IS MANDATORY. 14 bolts total to a double-bolt anchor. It’s helpful to put a long sling on the fifth bolt for rope drag, and to unclip the last bolt when lowering to keep your rope from rubbing.
