Description

Wintergarden Wall is located in the West Horizon Pass area of the Charons Gardens Wilderness Area. The wall is on the far northwest side of the canyon between Twin Rocks Mountain on the north and Granite Mountain on the south. While there are a good number of routes on the wall, most are short and the approach is not much fun (especially in the summer). The rock quality is generally good but ranges from smooth solid granite to course and crystalline rock that can tear up your hands. There is a deep gully full of trees and boulders that splits the wall. Most of the climbs start from a ledge above and right of the gully, while a handful of climbs start down and to the left.

Getting There

The approach to Wintergarden Wall is the crux of most of the climbs. From the Treasure Lake parking area on the south side of Charons Gardens, look northwest and identify Twin Rocks Peak (the highest point on the horizon) for reference. The Wintergarden Wall is located on the south side of this peak at the western end of the pass. Take the left hand trail north out of the parking lot, following the east side of Post Oak Lake. North of the lake, drop down into a stream bed and follow it to Granite Mountain. Follow the flanks of Granite Mountain around to the northwest and into the pass. The bottom of the pass is choked with vegetation, trees, and rocks, so it is best to stay a little higher on Granite Mountain to avoid this. Once on the northwest side of Granite, pick a descent into the pass and climb up the far side under Wintergarden Wall. Expect a lot of bush whacking, boulder hopping, and scrambling to reach the base of the wall.
