About Patterson Bluff - Right:

The smaller part of the bluffs, to the south east of the waterfall is accessible all year long. A low angle apron area with the upside down boot, is accessible from the waterfall stream bed. The right side of this right bluff, contains numerous steep crack and dihedral routes.
Approach: Drive on Black Rock Road around behind the bluff and find a blocked off fire road that leads to billboard like microwave reflectors at top of the right side bluff. It is 40 minute hike to the top of the bluff. Find rappel routes to the base. Part of this bluff can be accessed by hiking up Patterson Creek till near the base of the waterfall. Then bushwack across to a large apron area.
