Description 

This is one of the better climbs at Wild Rose. A nice, straight-in jam crack for 100 ft. The base is also easy to access without all the thorn bushes.

The size varies from fingers to hands and is sort of flared (reminds me of cracks in Joshua Tree). It's pretty sustained but has some good rest spots.


Protection 

Pro to 3", 2 bolt anchor/rap

We did this route in 2000. It took us two days of cleaning and hence, we named it "Rose Gardening." Somehow our ascent didn't make it into Marty's last guidebook.
