Description

The Garden is in the center of the north face, in a secluded spot hidden from the road by large pine trees. There is only one sport route here (Before The Deluge); all the other routes are mixed, and require gear in addition to the bolts. Routes here range in difficulty from 5.7 to 5.11+, with most in the 5.8 to 5.9 range.
Before The Deluge, Crackdown, Showtime, and The B Boys.

Getting There

Cross the creek via the tyrolean, or wade or hop rocks if the water level is low enough.

Once across the creek, go to the tree on the far side of the tyrolean, and follow a path up left through the woods.

Take a sharp right just before the talus field on a level path heading upstream. Walk past several pine trees to a secluded clearing after 50'.

This approach takes about 5 minutes.
