No grade available. This route is overhung and follows a crack that goes up and left from the big ledge on the garden wall. I tried this on TR as did one of the RTS mountain guides and neither of us had much luck. Its steep and some big holds are sharp (hence the name).
The big belay ledge below is not great due to its steepness, bring something to sling the tree or plan on belaying from above to TR it. If you get stuck and want to bail just walk around to the base of garden city or to the base of Aloe Vera for an easy lead to the top. Dont rap all the way to the elephant grass below the ledge.


find the anchors for Aloe Vera and clip onto them and hang over the edge, look down and you will see two bolts below. That is the top.


Trad gear in the crack and a 2 bolt anchor at the top. Can be TRed from the bolts if you get to the anchors by lowering off the anchors on the route called Aloe Vera that tops out just above these bolts. Un climbed so far.
