pulling through to the top
A juggy climb that goes over the left side of the small roof in the middle of the wall.
Start up on large jugs to the roof. Pull the roof using more balance than anything it, then more good holds to the chains.
The middle of three bolted routes on the more-or-less south facing part of Hard Rock. This face has large evergreen trees on the left and right.
5 bolts, chain anchors.

This route is immediately left of Gas Boost. Like most limestone, bring some sort of degreaser up with you.

I think this is one of the only five nines that made my forearms feel pumped. Easy enough, just don't expect it to really be a rest route.

Pumpy for a 5.9, but a fun route! Large holds abound, though getting greasy from use, throw in a small bulge to climb over and a great belay area and this route is a winner!

well bolted, fun route. Great holds/feet to the bulge, little thin above. Very fun route
