About The Garden:

Directions: Start as if you are hiking to WWI. After you have reached the top of the steep trail from the parking lot, walk for 3-4 minutes and you will come to an obvious trail on your right (I believe this is the trail to WWII). Follow this trail for about 3-4 minutes until you come to a 90 degree right-hand turn. Don't turn walk straight in to the woods. After entering the tree line you can readily see boulder "A" up the hill. Walk up the hill, past boulder "A" on the left side. Once on top of the hill, the Thug's Mansion boulder is oriented at 2 O'Clock roughly 100 yds further. The Panoply boulder is at about 11 O'Clock, roughly 150 yards. Mt. Si, bouldering in the Boulder Garden. Edition 1. Ethics: ---Do not boulder @ the WW1 boulders. These rocks have been deemed as restricted, probably due to their close proximity to the main Mt. Si trail. ---The trails are somewhat apparent please try to employ them to keep impact to a minimum. ---No chipping, resin (not that you’d need it), and please do not epoxy holds on to the boulders. The boulders: ---The boulders are roughly the same type of rock as the rest of SI. ---The boulders are generally higher in nature, ranging between 10-30ft at the lip. Landings are flat and mossy. ---All of the problems top-out. Given the high nature of the boulders, spotters and pads are advised. ---The boulders have mostly crimps with a few pinches and slopers thrown in. ---The top-outs are relatively clean, but you may want to give them a quick brush prior to sending. ---Pulling in the Garden can be dangerous. Unless you're willing to risk life and limb pulling on mossy rocks, don't do it.
