For those interested, access to Garth has changed. Residential development overlying the approach as described here has closed off the normal directions. Access to the Wash and the Parking area boulders can now be obtained by driving uphill on the now fully paved road heading towards the airport, to the small pullout at the apex of the hill next to the cragging. Walk down the obvious dirt path/road to the boulders. Have fun! May 15, 2015
