Patching environments that use 11g grid infrastructure or 12+ will always be complicated.
To have the bare minimum of a viable approach you need on "the same hardware":
1) dba test server
2) some kind of test server
3) production servers that match #1 and #2
Start with looking at and evaluating patches on 1 before coming up with plan to migrate into 2 and 3.  Backups all along the way of course.

I haven't done it, but I know that patching will be more complicated.

Hello all.. I’m working a new system design and wanted to use 12c RAC, but not all the applications which the database will support are compatible with 12c yet. So, I’m contemplating running 12c Grid Infrastructure with the 11g RDBMS. Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so, any gottchas I should be aware of..
