|Rock Garden Valley - Right Side
Start on right leaning crack which then travels up a vertical crack with a slight left jog then straight up to the summit.
This route is located on the lower shorter wall. There are about a half a dozen routes on the lower end - Mr. Michael Goes to WA is the last route as you go up canyon towards the upper shorter wall.
standard rack, create your own anchor. Rappel anchor can be found at the right end of the formation as you face the route.

Interesting first few moves combined with a step out left at the top which gets you thinking.

I found this route to be intimidating in the middle section, it looks to be unprotectable for about 12 feet and the climbing looked near impossible. Not sure if I was terribly off-route or what, I bailed and finished on the 5.5 to its right. I was very upset to find how easy the route sends on a second try. Good climbing.
