Description

Fun 5.8 flake climbing to a bolt-protected crux face move. (The face move is easily aided by stepping in a sling and reaching the horn on the roof above.) Then go over a small roof and enjoy the 5.5 crack climbing to a ledge with a two 1/2" bolt anchor.

The name has nothing to do with gardening, though like all routes at Index, a little moss-scraping and digging was needed to establish the line. You won't be needing to bring a lawn rake though to do the climb.

Location

On a lower-angle bluff up and right of Plum Pudding and Folsom Blues.

Protection

Small nuts to a fist-sized cam.

Hi Geoff,

I'm guessing about 100 feet or less, and a little uphill.

I TRed another route just right of The Lawn Rake that follows some face holds leading to a seam in a left-facing shallow corner. Thin 5.10-5.11 moves. It needed some more cleaning at the top though. Next time I visit, I'll see about finishing it off. Aug 21, 2014

This route is now cleaned up and ready to go. Walk 30 seconds to the right of Folsom Blues along the base of the cliff on a little trail. More route development is happening in the area, I'll post that soon. Jul 23, 2017
