After the graffiti removal.
The Rock Garden has lots of lines just a few miles off the main road. If you know where the Texas Block is, continue on and Rock Garden parking is on the left hand side. I have even seen some Unaweep projects in Rock and Ice magazine that are in the Rock Garden area.
It has a quick approach, a good variety of boulders, and lots of potential for me. In the Colorado Bouldering guidebook, there are 5-6 pages on the Rock Garden.
This is just a bit past the Texas Block area on the left hand side (assuming you're coming from Grand Junction). There's a dirt lot on the left.
