The Rode Hard Wall is a great destination for climber's of all abilities. Those in search of lighter fare will enjoy the juggy slabs of Buckskin Billy and its neighbors, and the burliest of 5.13 masters will struggle with the legendary Todd Skinner's powerful roof boulder problem of Copenhagen Angel. If that's not enough, there are also a couple of projects, and some fine bouldering in the aspen glen to the south.
Follow the main track from the parking lot. After only a few minutes, a single track trail, marked by a sign heads to the right. One option is to follow this trail, which heads directly to the Cowboy Poetry cliff, then head left along the cliff-base trail to the Rode Hard Wall.

Follow excellent incut juggy pockets over the cruxy bulge to a shallow, rounded corner and a good shake.
