Description

Gardeners Wall is a nice place to climb a few routes near Phoenix. It is noteworthy as pretty much the only multi-pitch formation in the northeast metro area. For the most part, traffic at Gardeners is mainly climbers looking to do the moderate classic routes such as Hanging Gardens (5.5) or Reinaissance Direct (5.7), but there are other fine routes here as well. Still, you're not going to have to deal with crowds here as it seems granite climbing near Phoenix is out of vogue.

Getting There

From the Tom’s Thumb Trailhead follow the Tom’s Thumb trail.  At about 1 mile you’ll come to well marked climbers trail for Gardener’s wall and Crossroads wall (Emergency trail Marker TT5).  Follow this trail, heading Southwest, as it winds down and through the wash then up the slope to Gardener’s wall.  Approach time is 30-45 minutes and moderate to hard.
