DescriptionThis route is a pumpy, steep, pocket-and-jug haul to the penultimate bolt, then some slopers and crimps to the last bolt, followed by another jug or two to the chains.
The climbing is overhung to the first bolt, less-than-vertical to the fourth bolt, overhung again to the sixth, then vertical.
The crux for me is getting to and clipping the last bolt and then climbing past it. It's probably not as hard as I think, but I'm pretty pumped by then.
LocationThis is the middle of three routes on the south-facing, next-to-west-most section of Hard Rock. (There is a newer, three bolt variant start in a shallow dihedral to the right of the bolt line described here, this line is the second-from-the-left).
The least-strenuous way to get there is to follow the trail when it turns right to go to the main Hard Rock wall (west-facing). Go north (left) along the main wall; you will turn west and by staying along the base of the rock you will end up at the base of these three newer Hard Rock routes.
Alternatively, don't turn right to the main Hard Rock area and instead continue straight to the base of the wall you see ahead of you as you come up the trail to the Hard Rock/White Wave/Escape Buttress areas.
