From The Garden, there is access to the Range Trail at Wolf Jaws col (again ascending over Upper Wolf Jaw and Armstrong), or the Orebed Brook Trail. The final ascent of Gothics from the top of the Orebed Brook trail involves the "cable route", a steep route where a cable has been installed to assist hikers and to help channel traffic along a specific route.
