Sit start with a sidepull up to good face hold on the steep face. The crux comes when transitioning to the arete and slab. Don't screw up the upper slab.


Continue on the main trail past The Siren until the trail starts heading down hill. Top out and walk down to the warm up slab area.

The big limbs and boulders at the bottom of the start could be perilous if you fell from the cruxy moves -- I only say PG-13 because there is no PG, and the descent can be kind of sketchy depending on how much growth is on the boulder.

Where did the name for this problem come from? I've heard it called Hula, but that may be just another rediscovery of the same problem. If anyone knows more info on the naming of this and all routes at the Gardens I'd be happy to talk- very interested.
