About Rock Garden:

Beautiful area just North of Penitente Canyon. Lots of tough 5.11 and above routes, with some easier routes mixed in. Camping is in Penitente Canyon or you can stay at the lodge right outside of the canyon entrance.
Nearest town or city: La Garita
Directions: Park in the parking area for Penitente Canyon, then walk to the back of Penitente and find the small wooden sign that says Rock Garden Trail. Follow the cairns for about a half mile and you will enter into the back end of the Rock Garden. The owners of the Ranch at the entrance of the Canyon request that climbers not park outside of the canyon entrance, so please respect the local wishes so access stays open.
