Description

"An original 1960's climb" per Tim Olson's book. Fun, varied climb involving a little chimney, some crack holds and some face moves.

Location

Hanging Gardens Wall - "Left Half," (but is on the far right of the "left half," so is pretty much in the middle of the wall). To the right of the two parallel cracks (Tip City and Lean Years). These three routes all join up at the ledge.

Protection

TR or Pro to 4"

From the trail up top, the anchors aren't visible but are accessible around a large block near the largest conifer. You can scramble from either side of the block without a rope but footing is poor so protection is a very good idea. Anchors are rusty but look solid.

The bottom of the route is fun and matches the description. It is dirty and overgrown, though, and there is rope drag. Made me wonder if I was on an established route at all! Chocks in the chimney are handy holds but they do move. Jul 5, 2018
