The Garden Wall is a minor crag in CCC with four routes presently established in the range of 5.10 to 5.11. One of these is strictly trad, the other three being fully bolted. Several more short and steep lines will be done later in the year. The rock is granitic and very solid. Due to the heavy vegetation, most of the crag gets little sun, and this can be user-friendly on a hot day. TGW won't hold anything remarkable, but it can provide a short respite from the crowds and the summer heat. Several boulder problems might be worth checking out.
TGW lies on the South side of the canyon and 200 meters East of Sonic Youth. Park as for Sonic or in a tiny pullout just East of the crag. No real trail exists, but a scruffy approach has been used enough to be identified. Otherwise scramble up from the lower angle terrain to the East. The approach time is 30 seconds or so.

A decent #2 RP protects the exit from this dihedral. Higher up, you can finish...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
