Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details

Description

Easy climbing to the first bolt then overhanging until the third bolt. Mostly pockets with some jugs; the crux is probably either between the first and second bolts or between the second and third depending on your height and reach.

Carefully placed feet are key; faith that there'll be another good hold coming helps as well.

There is a second pitch rated 5.12a/b; I'm not likely to climb that anytime soon so someone else will have to describe it.

Location

Punch the Clock is the third route from the right on the west face of Hard Rock.

Protection

5 bolts to chain anchors.

Crux is after the first bolt, pulling desperately and gratefully clipping. Reachy between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. Easy to the top. Jul 17, 2016

The route descriptions on MP or route locations rather, are a bit arbitrary for this area IMO. This route starts on big steps/ledges and has a somewhat high first bolt. It is on the west facing wall between the overhanging routes and the large trees. Also, if this route is at your max and you want to TR it, there are two 5.9 routes just to the right of it where you could easily traverse over from those anchors and set up a TR. May 31, 2014

Slightly high first bolt might want to stick clip it if you have one. Slightly overhung till after the 4th bolt with from the 2nd to the 4th bolt is the hardest part on some pockets and edges that look better than they really are. The top half is very easy and the rating drops down to a .7/.8 until the chains which makes this route about a 25 ft wonder. Great belay spot in the shade in an awesome section of AF. May 17, 2014

This route felt about the same difficulty to me as primal magic. The crux section started above the first bolt and ended around the 3rd bolt. Oct 22, 2010

fun route, interesting moves. the section between the first and second bolt is definitely the crux. there are some spacey sections of bolting where the climbing is easier. Jul 13, 2008
