Description 

Move right after the first bolt (skipping the roof) and work your way up to the right hand anchors. The 5.9 slab move above the last bolt can be bypassed by moving up the seam to the left of the bolt and doing a small mantle move(5.8). Once at the anchors, consider heading up “Garden Party” or “Knee Surgery” on P-Wall.

Location 

Farthest right bolt line on Garden Wall.

Protection 

4 bolts plus two anchor bolts on top

This is a good climb on solid rock. This past summer, we watched a heli-rescue off of Doggie Style from nearby P-Wall. Apparently, a guy fell just before clipping the third bolt, which resulted in a broken ankle.

This climb has a bolted anchor with chains and clips for easy rappelling.

To reduce the runout / ledge fall potential between the second and third bolts, it's possible to clip the third bolt of Woofs of a Wandering St. Bernard with a long runner.

This is a fun route with a very slabby finish. You can link this route to Garden Party in one long pitch if you use a double length sling on the first bolt and the Doggie Style anchor. Be kind to the tree in Mountaineer's Gully.
