Description 

Climbed everything else at Bishop Peak? I guess you'd better head here. A little steeper than I'd want to walk up, but a little too horizontal to really appeal. There's one questionable move on the whole rock. Slab central. Maybe it's good practice for leading on slab? God help you if you actually fall here.

Getting There 

From the main trail, go up past the fence and just before it cuts back into the trees, head right on the climber trail. Head left at the first cut back. Follow this up to P Wall. Keep heading left until you find yourself with Garden Wall on your left.

We only climbed here because it was a goal of my partner and mine to do every section in the Slater book. It was a major disappointment. Slabby routes that are a bit tremulous, but not too exciting. Yeah, yeah, slab isn't exciting when it's got a low rating, but trust me, not exciting. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Please stay off all routes on Garden Wall for awhile. Last weekend we found an owls nest with eggs in the gully between P-Wall & Garden Wall. Please give them the room they need.

Besides, the Poison Oak is terrible up there right now. Seriously.

This is a fun wall to climb for beginners to intermediate climbers. The slabs are easy lead climbs to set up a top rope and then you can play in the corner crack system. The poison oak is Baaaaad.
