BETA PHOTO: Climbs on the Garrison. 1) Hardgumbi's Lament 2) ...


This is crack #3 in the photo. Climb up the main gully and the dihedral between the Garrison and the James Brown Pillar. Continue up the crack until it splits into 2 cracks and climb up to the left facing dihedral. Sustained for a bit. Climb the face to the left of the dihedral or the crack itself (a bit more difficult) to a small roof. Continue to the ledge.

If anyone has FA information, please let me know.


Quite a few folks I think were referring to this formation on the lower
right side of the Castle as the Garrison, so I'll continue to use that designation.


Standard Platte rack.
