Description

The Constant Gardener starts out with unprotected face climbing, then goes into flared, poddy crack and face climbing. Then it finishes with an easy but fun hand and fist crack.

Location

This route is located 25 feet left of All the Right Moves. It is the next obvious crack system with 15 feet of blank, less than vertical face below it.

Build an anchor, walk off.

Protection

A single set of cams from 00 Metolius to #4 Camalot. #3 Metolius TCU. Additionally, extra hand and fist size pieces, and a large cordelette for the anchor.

[Hide Comment] Really cool route and there are anchors at the top. Awesome moves and well protected. Nice job on this one! I started in the dihedral on teh left and walked across the ledge to the thin crack. Way more fun than crimping the unprotected start. Grade: 5.11. Aug 17, 2011
