DescriptionGardeners 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.
For the moment, access to this area by climbers should be from a temporary trailhead/parking area that is located near the old Morrell's Wall Parking Lot area. From there, the new Tom's Thumb Trail leads up toward Morrells Wall, Gardeners Wall and on to Tom's Thumb. Please look for, and use designated climber access trails.
