Description

Further down the trail from the popular moderates, The Garden is a lesser-known but worthwhile 5.7. A short off-width section adds to the challenge.

Starting below an obvious crack system, follow the initial crack a short distance, then jog right to continue up the widening crack. Use good footwork to make short work of the flaring off-width, then easier crack climbing leads to the finish below the top of the cliff.

Location

Starts about 60' right of Hungry for Heaven.

Protection

Mostly medium gear (cams, tricams, hexes). Ring anchors at the top.

Definitely wish I checked here before I lead this. I had to bail about a quarter of the way up to ditch the small gear and get bigger stuff so I could finish it. Definitely need lots of #2's and 3's and even found a place for a #4 and #5 in the off width section. Fun route tho and my first T-wall lead. Jan 19, 2015

YUP! Take at least 3 #2, a #3 and a #4. This route has two systems of wide crack. Only one is visible from the ground. I, also run out of big gear, but I did find a way to protect on some horizontal crack to the right face with my "beloved" offset cams and long runners. Spicy. May 26, 2015

I thought the route was only one star. However, bring your second up to the anchors for a 5 star view, and a nice little ledge. Mar 19, 2018
