BETA PHOTO: Hard Time starts from the steps, dark shaded rock,...


From the step traverse right past bolt to small fingers crack to ledge, up and right over some more ledges then up and under a big boulder to a chimney splitting top two towers to chains between towers. You can also scramble up the steps and around the left side of the tower to the chains to set up a TR.


On the middle of the south face of a prominent tower on the west side of the wash downhill from the Jailhouse Wall but before the Exercise Yard. Assault With Battery is the bolted route to the right on this face.


1 bolt plus gear, chain anchors on top.

Kurt Schroeder told me to come up with a jail themed name for this tower, I think who ever put in the bolted 5.10d next to Hard Time should have a strong say. Anyone know who put that route up or have any ideas for names? Commissary Tower/The Commissary/Canteen? The Run? Chow Hall? The Hole?

Nick, the 10d to the right is listed on this site as Assault With Battery.

If it's really important to you to name this rock feel free to name it whatever you want.

Also looks like you flunked the test. John had to tell you the name of the route on the right.

I believe there are 3 bolts on this route and only one or two gear placements.
