For the moment, access to this area by climbers should be from a temporary trailhead/parking area that is located near the old Morrell's Wall Parking Lot area. From there, the new Tom's Thumb Trail leads up toward Morrells Wall, Gardeners Wall and on to Tom's Thumb. Please look for, and use designated climber access trails.
DescriptionPitch one is a nice crack (The Phantom). Pitch two angles up and right using cracks and face to edge of chimney (Kreuser's Chimney). Pitch three crosses the chimney and heads to the chain anchors of Hanging Gardens. Pitch 4 and/or 5 continues to the right and up clipping a few bolts and gearing the easy crack(s) to the summit. The final pitch stays to the left of the three bolted face (For Cryin' Out Loud) and uses the crack for gear and climbing.
Cool route, crux for some will be trusting the rusty bolts and sideways and even a bit of down climbing to keep the grade 5.7/5.8
LocationClimb the first pitch of the Phantom and belay in nice stance, gear belay. The route traverses the entire Gardner's Wall face and eventually leads you to the top where you walk off or rap down using one of the anchors along the top.
