Rough idea of the routes around the Hanging Garden gully. Not totally sure of the exact lines from this distance but you should be able to get the idea of where to start, end, bolt counts, and rap stations. Hopefully didn't botch the line for Gnatty too badly.

Need two ropes to get down if you rap from Whipping Post but you can manage with one from the boulder (be sure the cord around it is in good shape!) if you angle up the gully or stop midway at the first pitch anchor of Hodad.

The anchor in the back left (climbers left) is a pair a very rusty hangers providing a short rappel to the area at the base of the Hanging Garden and one can easily scramble back around to the top of the gully to continue hiking down from there.

If you scramble down to near the cliff edge at the bottom left of the hanging garden you can scrounge a rappel to the base of the Fire Wall from a big tree (got down with a 70m - although if you chose the wrong tree it might not make it). Last time I was up there there was a decent cord and steel quicklink in place. Jun 11, 2014
