The Secret Garden is the home of some of the hardest problems in the canyon, classic moderates, and a few projects that will make the first ascentionist famous for sure. The rock is high quality and it is a good place to warm up or burn out. All of the problems on the warm up boulder are very good and there are tons of eliminates to get your session started. Twisted (V4) is the classic moderate of the area and very worth doing. Lance's Dihedral (v6) is also a classic, try the Bear Hug Arete (V8) and find out what sand bagging really means. The v10 circuit Copperhead, Mr. Mom, All Thumbs, and Shingles are some of the best in the state. Also, if you are really feeling strong, you can give Bully (V11/12) a couple burns.

or wait until spring, two guide books will be coming out.
Park in the Little Cottonwood Park n' Ride lot. Locate the climber's trail that starts in the northeast most corner of the lot, directly left of the bathroom. From here follow the trail up and east until you reach your desired sub-area.

I don't like bouldering very much but even I can admit this problem is really fun. Start up the arete using the drill scars and an occasional left foot smear or right foot heel hook. This problem isn't very tricky or sequential; it's just a matter of working your way up and daring to go higher and higher. The topout is an airy and exciting mantle. As soon as you get on top you'll want to go do it again!...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

Pair of 5.10 climbing shoes in the secret garden area. Went climbing on 3/13/16 and found these around 4pm that day.

A friend of mine lost his wallet last night. He climbed at the boulders near the park & ride. Please send me a message if you found it. Thank you!
