Description:

A garden classic trad route. Begin about 30' left of the End of an Era arete and follow the obvious crack/dihedral system for 2 or 3 pitches. Rappel the route, or climb to the summit and downclimb the south side of the summit. Realize if you go above the belay alcove and summit you will have to downclimb to either rap rings on the west side or downclime the whole way. This route is often closed in the spring and/or summer due to raptor nesting. Please obey all closures. The first belay station is very tight. Basically a hanging belay making a party of three or more next to impossible, but can be skipped with a 60 M rope

4 out of 5 stars Excellent climb (mostly)

Great climb, and definitely worth summitting just for the view. Oddly enough though, in contrast to most reviewers, I found the 1st pitch the most challenging. The climbing itself was straightforward, but the initial ground-fall potential and the series of small ledges to hit above that combined with the rock quality (good for GOGs I admit but not good by most standards) gave me the creeps. The next two pitches were much more pleasant. That's my two-cents worth.

5 out of 5 stars classic must-do climb for the garden

did it in 3 pitches, first belay stance was covered in bird shit =( but awesome climb to the top nonetheless. also I stemmed the crux move which seemed a lot easier than laybacking
