A surprisingly nice climb with fun moves on perfect rock. Start by putting a piece in the small slot above the starting roof. Climb up the corner/arete on the roof's right side to the large ledge above. Then make some unprotected 5.9 face moves up to a fixed pin. A short finger crack above leads to balance moves, a bolt, and the crux. Continue to a tree belay.


This route is five feet to the left of Rock Garden and starts under the far right hand side of the prominent roof/overlap seven to ten feet off the ground on the left side of the cliff. Look for a small slot for a wire at the lip, a fixed pin jutting out in the middle of the climb, and a bolt high above on a clean white headwall. To descend, rappel from the tree at the climb's finish.


Bring a small rack with an emphasis on small wires/TCUS to supplement the fixed pin and bolt. Tree anchor on top.

This a very fun route. It was very well protected with a metolius 0 and 1. Make sure to have a small cam or two. The only move that felt 5.10 is the top at which is protected by the bolt. The rest felt 5.9- to me. There is a 5.4 to the right you could lead up to set a perfect toprope for this route.

ugly ending, where does it end?

the guide book had the route ending just above the bolt on the blank face where there is a jug on top although I'm not sure whether or not the arete to the right is en route for this one. I called it once my chest was level with that bolt. great climb that is both athletic and somewhat technical.
