Hartford is a two pitch route that begins just right of Boston. Look for a tree along the overlap to the right of the notch on Boston. Hartford begins just below and left of the tree.
P1. Climb the thin slab past a single bolt aiming for a point on the overlap just to the left of the tree. Pull the overlap using big holds to gain the slab above. Thin slab climbing leads past three more bolts to anchors located just below the Beer Can Alley.
P2. From the anchors, step right and climb past three bolts to a ledge with a tree on. The climb gets a little confusing above the ledge as you can see a number of bolts that belong to different routes. The actual line continues straight up and then veers slightly to the right passing three additional bolts. The anchors are on a sloping face.
Rappel the route to get back to the ground.
Four bolts on P1 with an optional hand/fist sized cam at the overlap. Six bolts on P2. Both pitches have anchors.

A fine route. Fun little mantle after clipping the 2nd bolt.

After you pull the overlap, look left for the next two Hartford bolts. The Dome Driver bolt is more obvious, but it's to the right.
Hartford shares the P2 Anchor with Boston.
