Description

Being on the North Eastern part of the mountain, the Hanging Garden area tends to be shady and filled with trees and plant life. The granite quality is good but of course there are a few grainy lines which should be noted in the problem description. This area will feel a little different then the usual woodson proper spots, but is a nice compliment and addition to the hill. With a ranging variety of grades and style there is a little something for everyone, ENJOY!

Getting There

Directions Part 1: Take the 67 East to Archie Moore Road, make a U-turn on Archie Moore Road and head back west on the 67. As you get back on the 67 you will notice a silver guard rail on your Right when the guard rail ends there will be a pull-out to park in.

Part 2: Once parked walk back toward the silver guard rail and you'll notice a dirt path on the left of the rail, walk 10 or 20 feet down the path and look to your left where you should notice a tall wooden railing and a walking path. Go under/over the wooden railing and head Left on the walking path.

Part 3: As you are walking on the pathway you will pass a golf course and eventually you should be behind some homes. The trail will be heading uphill. As you see the homes coming to an end, keep your eye out on the Left for a Cairn next to a single person trail branching to the left, take the left Trail exit.

Part 4: You will take the single person trail for a short distance and then it will run into a larger dirt road, you will go right on that to Road. Another short distance on that dirt road, look for a trail to your right (heads up a hill) marked with a Cairn. Take that trail.

That trail will involve a little scrabbling up/over some rock patches.

You will eventually come to a split in the trail, going left will take you to a large boulder (seen from the split in the trail) called the Backyard Boulder with a Crack 5.7 and a Flake 5.9 on it. Going right will take you to the Hanging Gardens area.
