Fine Fir is the second route from the left in The Garden. It is the easiest pitch in this area, and is identified by a good-sized pine tree growing out of the rock about 15' up the wall.
Climb up to the tree, and pass it on the right or left to a good ledge. Clip a bolt and step up and right. Clip a second bolt and move up right to a finger crack next to a slab. You can place a yellow Alien in a small pod up and left. Climb up the crack and step right at its top onto the slab. Continue up and right to the anchor, on a pedestal about 10' above a large pine tree.
You can belay here if you're going to do one of the upper wall routes (Showtime, Dutch Treat, Border Crossing, or The B Boys), or else lower back down.
On the left side of The Garden, below a pine tree growing out of the rock 15' up the wall.

If you go left of the tree and continue up the faint crack it is a little harder. Small cams and a couple of small stoppers is all you need. You can finish up at the "Just do it" Anchors this way. 5.8

I ended at "Just Do It" anchors, and I think it was a much better finish than continuing up the extremely dirty gully to the true anchors.
