Updated rap stations at Emu Rocks 26-Apr-2016 At 3:37:04 PM Grinder
Yes, at the right end of the cliff, but not in plain view.

From the top of Whipping Boy and Sahara, traverse right (facing the cliff) to the top of Patagonia Direct Finish which is roughly at the top of a ramp of red rock. Continue right, down the red ramp for ~8m and the first rap station is tucked in a small alcove just below the ramp.

The second (lower) rap station can also be used for descent from the Patagonia original/traverse finish. It is ~6m up and left of the finish of the climb on easy but fragile rock. The move back left through chickenheads does add some drag, so you may want to bring your partner(s) across the traverse before heading up to the station. The alternative is a pile of tat about 6m to the right of the finish of the climb.

PS The Patagonia traverse finish is correctly described in the Sublime Climbs guide but incorrectly drawn on the topo as exiting the top of the orange corner diagonally up a short face. The traverse actually heads out of the corner a few meters before the top of it and all the way across the face horizontally to the skyline (spectacular).
