Description

Great steep climb with big and little pockets, a couple crimps, and some interesting moves. A difficult start takes you up to the first big pocket (which is usually occupied by birds in the springtime). This is followed by slightly easier but sustained climbing between the 1st and 3rd pins, with the crux match move at the fourth pin.

Location

This is the first route you come to on the right hand wall as you enter the Gash, left of Silver Spoon and Cocaine.

Protection

4 drilled angles. 2 bolt anchor shared with Candyman.

Find the hidden left side-pull below the fourth pin and you can reach straight up to the pocket with your right and avoid the difficult hand match. Much better this way! Sep 14, 2010

 
Broke off a good hold at the start. Sorry!! It's a little harder. Aug 29, 2011

Another hidden Garden gem. Work monos, pockets, and thin sidepulls past a couple cruxes for a short and fun topout. Sep 8, 2013
