THE GARDEN PATH 5.7 * 125’' M (3b)
Begin either from the large ledge (as for Gravity's Rainbow) or in the sloping alcove 15' to the left (below the corner crack). Climb the broken face about 15'’ left of Gravity’'s Rainbow through various intermittent cracks and faces. The lower part is gear protected 5.5 climbing, the upper part has a few bolt protected face moves (way better than the first half). Belay on top at the large ledge (3 bolt belay - 1 smashed). A wide range of cams and/or nuts are needed to protect the climb.

V1 – 5.5 125'’ G – avoid the bolts (stay right in the crack the whole way up). Dirtier, but a totally trad and easier variation.

V2 – 5.7 100'’ M (2b) – traverse right to the chain anchors for Gravity's Rainbow below the third bolt.
