The Garden Boulders Rock Climbing
New route in the Garden. Maybe V3/4.
The main bouldering area. Comprised of a handful of massive boulders and many smaller ones, this contains most of the developed problems at the Garden.
The story is that the boulders prevented access to the trees here so the logging company didn't clear it out. Luckily for climbers the old trees provide plenty of shade and a great atmosphere. There is one main trail that leads down from the parking area and past the top two boulders before plunging downhill to the rest. Parts of the forest are still very overgrown and there is a thick layer of moss over everything that hasn't been climbed recently.
Park on the second gravel road (as described in the main directions). Walk East on the trail downhill to the boulders.
Climbing Season For the Willamette Valley area.

Topo Hawk has a fairly comprehensive guide to the bouldering in the area. In general there are a lot of discrepancies over the names and grades of routes in the area and no complete guide exists.
