Description 

Pitch one is a nice crack (The Phantom). Pitch two angles up and right using cracks and face to edge of chimney (Kreuser's Chimney). Pitch three crosses the chimney and heads to the chain anchors of Hanging Gardens. Pitch 4 and/or 5 continues to the right and up clipping a few bolts and gearing the easy crack(s) to the summit. The final pitch stays to the left of the three bolted face (For Cryin' Out Loud) and uses the crack for gear and climbing.

Cool route, crux for some will be trusting the rusty bolts and sideways and even a bit of down climbing to keep the grade 5.7/5.8

Location 

Climb the first pitch of the Phantom and belay in nice stance, gear belay. The route traverses the entire Gardner's Wall face and eventually leads you to the top where you walk off or rap down using one of the anchors along the top.

Protection 

Several bolts and gear for the first pitch and last pitch. One of the belays is the top of the Hanging Gardens first pitch.
