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.
DescriptionWe did the route in one long pitch with a 70 meter. Crux is encountered immediately and then again going from bolt two to three. The original description has the route with only two bolts so either a bird is laying bolts for eggs or there is a bolt fairy adding a few here and there...either way I was glad to use them. Down low it feels oddly more 5.9 or harder with moves over the rusty original hardware. After the cool horn/quartz feature (bolt number 4 or the original belay) the route eases up and you get to clip another newer looking bolt.
Location25 feet to the right of Hanging Gardens is obvious right arching crack and big flake. A newer looking bolt will be out of reach followed by the original two rusty bolts. To the right of the bolts you will see another bolt which is used for the route For Cryin' Out Loud.
You can reach the Hanging Garden anchors/chain from the routes end with a 70 meter rope, make sure to angle left though!!
