This area of grey-rock formations stands out at the mostly sand colored Pena Blanca. They form small fins which extend from the valley up the slope. This area has highest concentration of top-ropes and trad routes. Use caution when placing trad gear as the rock quality should be considered very suspect. Most of the TR routes have easy access to their anchors.

Getting There 

Park on the west side near a formation called the "Volcano", and hike past this formation on the west until the Garden becomes visible.
