Description:

5-Star, renowned climb up thin face - Garden Classic! Begin by making some off-balance moves up the wash-out right of Rocket Fuel. Work left onto the face about 45' up to the crux. Crux is a serious reach (read, Dyno for smaller folks) about 50' up, but is very well protected. Ends at the anchors for Rocket Fuel.

4 out of 5 stars Fun. Made some friends with wasps living at the top.

Balancy along the wash to the right, footwork gets a bit awkward in places, switching feet etc. Once you depart the wash out things get steeper, but holds get better. The crux requires some reach.

Mostly old pitons, some with rings. One is bent awkwardly and is kind of scary looking, but they're pretty close together towards the crux which eased my discomfort. I was tempted to skip one as the route seems to head left while the pitons stay right.

Once I made it on to the ledge with the anchors (gasping) I hit the wall with my hand directly above a small hole, and four or five wasps exited the hole, apparently I had knocked on their front door. I crouched on the other side of the ledge like a little pansy until they calmed down and went back inside--didn't get stung. Ropes go right in front of that hole, which made cleaning a bit nerve wracking, but not problematic.

4 out of 5 stars Easy route till the crux

Im going to give it a 5.10c rating strictly because of the crux. The rest of it is 5.10a maybe even 5.9+. Really weird anchor though, you have to walk left on a ledge to get to it

5 out of 5 stars super clinb

Look for the runners, some are dime sized but with a little edging they make the grade, great location, nice pro set on this one.
