CAUTION, SKETCHY BOLT ON 12d, FAR LEFT SIDE OF CHOSS GARDEN
On the 5.12d on the far LEFT side of the crag, the 3rd bolt had a small block / hold next to it with a chalk "X" on it. Seemed suspicious so we wiggled it and it came of, revealing a very questionable bolt placement with what looks to be small stress fractures in the surrounding stone.
Would recommend avoiding this bolt. Needs to be moved to more solid territory. Hard to say how solid it is, really, but a visual inspection does not inspire confidence.

|Had a nice afternoon of climbing at the Choss Garden. Mid 40's, sunny and Fun routes. But many of the belay anchors and the fixed chains? left me wondering... Is it really that hard to set up a route with decent hardware that makes sense?|

Directions indicate to drive 1.6 miles up canyon from Storm Mountain picnic area - following these directions puts you at the base of the s-curves and Mill-B trailhead.
Rather, from the intersection at the mouth of the canyon drive 3.8 miles up canyon and park in a pull-off on the north side of the road.
On the south end of the pull-off you'll notice a faint trail heading up scree into a gully, follow this trail up to the easily noticeable crag.

The Directions are wrong in both the guidebook and on this page. Drive 1 mile past the Storm Mountain picnic area. Park on North side of road across from private house. Head up rocky gully and traverse right when level with wall.
As mentioned before, the .12d on far left has a bad bolt placement in poor rock and this route does not seem to get much action.
"The Benefactor" 5.12b now has a nice equalized 2 bolt anchor instead of the old slings around the tree.
There is a new route "Garden Party" 5.11a on the far right side of the wall.
