Casual climbing in Ballard reaches new heights. – The Scene
Located next to the Ballard Locks, Stone Gardens adds a distinctively modern touch to an area rich in tradition. The walls are made from plywood and coated with texture paint. While the rear bouldering and top-rope sections offer a few unique features (such as holes), for the most part wall texture is less pronounced and effective than in other gyms such as Vertical World and Cascade Crags.
It's okay – My dad and I went there a couple days ago. The walls, let me say were very 'pretty'. Although they were catching to the eye, they weren't very fun to climb on. It was hard to edge on the panels and my feet kept slipping off. I'm not a beginner though. One thing I must point out is that the staff was not very friendly and the gym wasn't kept up very well. All they need to do is clean up a little. There were a lot of routes set and I like being able to belay off the harness.
