Hard Rock is a great area, with possibly the largest variety of grades and excellent crag positioning. Hard Rock is great almost all year for people of all experience levels. Hard Rock is home to American Fork's easiest routes, 5.6 and 5.7, but the majority of the climbs are in the 5.11-5.12 range.
To reach the crag head up 1.7 miles up from the monument flagpole, a bit past Little Mill campground. You can park on the north side, in a pay area, or on the south side in the small pull off. Locate the faint tail on the north side of the road and hike up about five minutes following a stream drainage. It takes about five minute to get to the start of the crag, which continues right and wraps around the corner.

This route is located just right of Rockapella. Start and belay up on the higher ledges. This is a great route, sustained pulling on steep to slightly overhanging rock. Lots of good features. The start is a bit run out but very easy. make sure your belayer is attentive or there is a knot in the end of the rope if you are using anything less than a 60 meter rope. On the day I was there, someone was dropped 20 feet while being lowered. The rope went right through the belay device. It is diff...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
