About Rock Gardens:

This place was discovered about 40 years ago and is the concentrated place for sport climbs that number well over 80 including the boulder gardens just 5 min down and to the left of the rock gardens. The place was retrofitted a few years ago and is a hassle free place if you need a break from trad or alpine in the area. Helmets are recomended as there is some loose rock. This is a very popular area and a good place to go early in the season or when its raining.
Nearest town or city: Jasper
Directions: Take Moberly bridge across the Atha B river and head left. Follow the road past the turn-off for the 6th bridge. Continue for about 800m and than turn left onto a semi paved road that takes you to the fifth bridge parking area. From Jasper about 11min. The walk in is only 15min but everyone gets lost the frist time. From parking lot take the footbridge across the river. Follow the trail for 100m and than turn left. Another 100m and the trail forks at the map. Follow the smaller trail uphill marked 7H. Continue to the top of the cliff. As you head down the rock garden is on you right and if you head down into the forest and to your left you get to the boulder gardens.
