BETA PHOTO: Right side of No Money Down.
Good warm up route for the area (or introduction to Rumney climbing). Start on blocks just left of the gully and to the right of Truth in Advertising. Clip the first bolt, step onto the face, and continue past five more bolts to the anchors. The only difficulty lies between the last bolt and the anchors. Felt a little harder than Truth in Advertising.
Rose Garden is located on the far right side of the No Money Down area and climbs the face just left of a broken gully.
Six bolts to quick clips.
At the top of Rose Garden.

Just a little fun fact about this route, this route is named after Jim Shimbergs daughter, Rose. If you know Jim you know family comes first in everything he does, this demonstrates that. A fun climb as well.

Also not to contradict you Steve but I believe the crux comes just before the last bolt.
The top may feel a little run out...

Did this today. The top does feel a little run out but good holds. The 2nd or 3rd bolt was a bit wobbly in its hole.

I did this as a first 5.7, but to me it felt slightly harder. I didn't notice any of the bolts feeling loose, but if others had reported that than it makes sense that it would have been tightened by now. Definently somewhat run out after the last bolt, so I ended up traversing over left and clipping the truth in advertising chains (a great link-up). Good moves between small crimps and good feet.

I have the tendency to lump all the easy slab routes on this section of Meadows together in my brain as they're all similar and nothing too remarkable. I don't really like them for the most part but this is the one that sticks out and I would enjoy getting on again. Fun moves using the right edge and flakes.
