I tried to do "Garden Path" per the books description but I was pushed left as Doug is in the pic. Pulling the bulge direct seemed way over 5.7.

Looking at Eric Andre's photo in Swartling & Mayer, 3e, I see I am between "Rock Garden" and "Garden Path". Their map of the area marks this as "Rock Garden", but the written description of "Garden Path" and "Moon Rock" agree with what looked good to me at the time. I think the 2e version of Swartling made the location of these three routes confusing.

At the time I was trying to do "Rock Garden," like Burt said. You know you've had a good trad day when you climb a route that seemed a little on the hard side for the grade, and realize only years later that you climbed the WRONG route!
