Description

We 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.

Location

25 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!!

Protection

5 or 7 bolts and gear to #3 for crack near the top. Two bolt anchor hidden near the top, under some tree's.

Went straight up the water groove after bolt 3 into crumbly stemming. Would not recommend, apparently original line traverses left. Dec 2, 2017
