Find the patch of ivy behind the Temple you start at (almost directly under the huge bridge you came in on). If your grip meter is high enough, you can just jump straight up the side until you reach the first ledge, which has a small patch of leaves on it. Position yourself directly under that patch of leaves. Continue to hold Grip/Duck and jump straight up. Your character will immediately duck in those leaves, allowing you to refill any lost grip. Then, continue around and up the side until you reach the path leading to the garden.
