Description 

Victory Garden is a long route from home, but it has good adventure! Moderate climbing is punctuated with a 5.9 finger crack around pitch 3. Your nut tool is your friend!

Location 

On the West Face, right of West Face (Hare, Sauder 1978), locate a small, left-curving and left-facing dihedral 200' from ground, and start below it.

Descent: downclimb South Ridge, and walk off to the West. Going East is possible as well.

Protection 

Standard trad rack, nothing bigger than 3" crack.
