My Secret Garden


This route starts on the huge sloper with tiny feet just right of Nest and under the blocky roof. Move up and right to some jugs then up to the undercling roof crack. The route was bolted to move left into the corner, which is quite technical, but has been sent going straight up the roof, which is quite powerful.


Just right of Nest. Bolt is over the edge and is a bit tricky to see and stick clip but it is possible.


5 bolts, rap ring anchor

This route is amazing! Super fun and powerful climbing on good holds! Great movement and one of the best here!

Added a bolt (now the third bolt) to protect the direct movement through the roofs. It makes the second and fourth bolts unnecessary. I may pull them to use the hangers elsewhere but they aren't hurting anyone and leave open the option to climb up the corner instead.

Much nicer making the roof moves now that all of the dirt is off of the holds.

There was a bat roosting in the big undercling today. I'm sure it was a surprised as I was.
