Description

This is not my route, but if you're collecting the whole series you can stop here on the walk in for a warm-up.

2 routes leave from this balcony belay (see Beta photo); Hanging Gardens' is on the left skyline, following the cracks, all gear. A little runout at the top, but the angle drops off and the holds are great. The anchor bolts have webbing and a single rap' ring. You may want to bring a few runners to replace the old ones. (Good shape Nov 2015), or you could rap off the back anchor for A Cryin' and A Humpin'.

I'd say that both these routes would favor belaying from the top since it would be tight on the belay stance and the rope would likely be in the way.

Location

This is on the left side of the formation and climbs from a balcony about 25 feet above the base.

Protection

Gear. I placed med nuts and small-#2 Camalot.
