About Patterson Bluff - Kings River:

This area has huge potential and has a dozen or so established routes. Patterson Bluff is the main attraction to this area but there are other crags and domes in the area. There is a life time of climbing and bouldering. Some of the smaller crags off the road can be top roped and if you look hard enough you can find bolt in a few places. The rest of the climbing is bouldering or trad.
