Description

Garden Party is a new bolted route on the far right side of the wall and climbs just left of the arete. It has the best belay spot (flat) on the wall and is a great warm-up with good rests and sweet position.

Starts just right of "Depth of Field". Pre-clip 1st bolt as the first crux comes at you right at the start. Move right past 2nd bolt to a nice rest on the arete (harder if you go up straight), then trend left and up past a big pocket and and a perma-draw with difficulties easing near the top.

Location

Garden Party is on the far right side of the Choss Garden, just right of "Depth of Field" 5.12a.
Bolted anchor provides easy and safe descent.

Protection

7 Petzl SS bolts plus bolted anchor. Bolt #6 has a perma-draw.

As of June 1st 2017, the perma draw is back up and everything is good to go!
Get on it. Jun 2, 2017
Great route. The bolt with the perma draw has lost its nut and the perma draw now hangs on the first bolt with a solitary hanger. The biners on the belay are looking pretty worn. May 10, 2017
