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.

The first bolt is 25' off the deck under the small right-facing corner in the middle of the wall. It is not more than 5.3 up to that bolt. Go straight over the corner or even left of it - this is the crux move. Ignore the diagonal right sloping ledge out of the corner....[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.
