Description

One of the longest and most solid routes on the wall, Retro'd Hardman climbs a line of varied terrain past numerous bolts and a couple of tricky bulges. A difficult, yet well protected start gets things going, the climbing then eases off and the crux meets the pawing climber at a small roof about 3/4's of the way up. Finish the climb over easier, more relaxed terrain. A tricky set of moves are required to reach the chains.

This retro-fit effort has the most solid rock at the Aguaworld. Besides the start and finish, steady, continuous climbing past well placed bolts make the climbing quite enjoyable.

  • After a long period of neglect, an attempt was made to bring more traffic to this great line. Retro'd Hardman is a re-fit of the older, more scarcely gear protected, route, Resin Hardman (1995).

Location

Retro'd Hardman climbs directly over the older and scarcely protected trad line Resin Hardman. It sits in the middle of the right side (east) wall, one route right of Burn Tough

Protection

Sixteen draws for fourteen bolts and an anchor. A few longer draws or slings are nice for reducing drag. 60 meter rope minimum, watch your ends!
