Correct me if any of this information is wrong. I did it to the best of my knowledge. Jun 25, 2007
Great area. I was definitely on a "higher plane" after starting on Zen Fen and working my way left, ending with Zen master. The grade progression through these 3 climbs is Maple Canyon perfection! Big and beautiful trees keep things partially shaded in the afternoon.

Note: "Zen Master" now has separate anchors from "Meet the Buddha" (side by side, but not shared). May 8, 2017
Anyone know what the four are so routes left of Whiskey Lounge at Zen Garden are named/ rated. I checked the guide book (Knezek) and they were not in it. Climbed the one directly to the left of wl and it was moderate with fun little roof pull. I am curious about the rest over there... none looked hard but we headed over to cragganzenden after zen so didn’t climb them. Jun 12, 2018
^ there are actually 6 routes left of Whiskey Lounge. My take on them was the one just left was really great and they get easier, less interesting, and less clean as you go left. (from right to left: 9+ ,9, 8, 7, 7, 6) 1 day ago
