Start as for Hanging Gardens route (stay left of the maple tree belay) but go straight up the vertical corner system 60 ft. to blocky ledges then exit left to walk off.

The pin protecting the crux (1st bulge) looks pretty solid. Can be backed up with a small stopper in the thin flake below it. Pro is definitely thin and tricky to fiddle in throughout the difficult sections. Nothing I really wanted to take a fall on...

3 out of 5 stars Sandy Direct

Easy climbing to rusty pin (which protects the crux), then tricky move over bulge followed by slightly sketchy small gear to next rest. Ends with great crack to anchors (bolts). Overall a good route with interesting moves and challenging gear placements.
