At the far right side of the New New Place, right of Twin Cracks, Hard Crack seeks out a right-facing overhanging wide hands crack which is midway up the face. You have a few choices to get up to this, none are particularly difficult or rewarding, but it is easiest coming in from blocky terrain a little to the rightt. The crux is probably easiest to lieback, and protects with a #3 camalot. The climb is not as hard after this steep section.


Right of Twin Cracks.. find the right-facing overhanging offwidth 1/2 way up. Choose your variation to get there.


Cams to 3", and nuts. There may be a 2-bolt anchor at the top, or, if not, you can probably use the Twin Cracks anchors, rather than causing further damage to trees (or, build your own anchor with gear).

A little bit dirty (water-runoff?) but with a fun, strenuous crux. This is a good route to push yourself on if you aren't solid at the grade because the gear is great and the route feels a bit easier than other 10+ cracks in White Rock. Nov 26, 2009
