Access Issue: Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details

Description

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.

Location

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.

Protection

5 bolts, chain anchors.

This route is immediately left of Gas Boost. Like most limestone, bring some sort of degreaser up with you. Sep 12, 2006

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. Aug 17, 2009

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! Jul 26, 2012

well bolted, fun route. Great holds/feet to the bulge, little thin above. Very fun route Oct 7, 2012

This climb felt extremely greasy, I wasn't able to get above the 3rd bolt because it was just too slick and I kept slipping off on the final steep moves (after that I imagine it gets easier), and it was getting dark anyway so I just bailed. It felt significantly harder than Platinum Blonde which I had just led before this one. (Might be part of the reason I wasn't able to get up this though). However this was maybe my 10th outdoor lead/climb so I won't argue with what it's rated, and will just assume I was doing it wrong. Be aware of the slickness though. Aug 30, 2013
