|Rock Garden Valley - Left Side
This is a steep crack to the left of Euthyphro, near the left end of the wall. As with the other routes on this wall, it is in shade most of the time.

This is an excellent route (the best on the wall IMHO) and not just a straight up crack; there's a very good traverse left on a diagonal crack about halfway up the climb, exposed and a tad awkward. Higher up the escape traverse right provides a very exciting finish, especially if your short, a 3.5 Friend protects this well.
IMHO a grade more difficult than Smithereens or Young Lust.

This is the hardest of the 4 routes on this formation. It is a great little line as are all these routes.

This route is much like it's neighbors of the area. Takes excellent pro, cracks are smooth, rock quality high and overall another moderate gem. You get a little spice towards the top but you'll have to do it to see where. Fun times and for the record, you are not too short my partner is tiny and did it.....so can you :)
