DescriptionThis 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.
