Climber on Vapor Trails (5.11d **) - Garden Ledge ...

Description 

This includes several different areas on the lower West face.

The Lower Garden Ledge Wall (furthest left and below the Garden Ledge) has one good 11a sport climb.

The Garden Ledge Wall area (above the lush huge ledge to the left) has mostly hard sport routes, but also includes the popular 5.6*** "Sheepish".

The West Face Slabs area has mostly easier low angled climbs and includes the climbs above the lower #100 trail.

Getting There
