Hard Rock is a great area, with possibly the largest variety of grades and excellent crag positioning. Hard Rock is great almost all year for people of all experience levels. Hard Rock is home to American Fork's easiest routes, 5.6 and 5.7, but the majority of the climbs are in the 5.11-5.12 range.
To reach the crag head up 1.7 miles up from the monument flagpole, a bit past Little Mill campground. You can park on the north side, in a pay area, or on the south side in the small pull off. Locate the faint tail on the north side of the road and hike up about five minutes following a stream drainage. It takes about five minute to get to the start of the crag, which continues right and wraps around the corner.

Can be done in 1 or 2 pitches. 1st pitch is 12b, 2nd pitch is 12a.Direct start or slightly to the right with right hand on undercling. Starts with a bouldery move to good pockets under first bolt. Crank some polished crimps and move out left to a nice pocket and up thru some more jugs. Move out left to a small pocket and then back right (this seems to be the redpoint crux for most people). Head straight up for maximum value or veer a little right into the corner choss. Top out on some slopey ed...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
