Bill on Hardscrabble


Find the chimney on the south side that provides access to the prominent thin crack on the west face. Follow bolts and thin aid to the summit. Avoid the monster loose block near the summit.


The route is easily identified from the road at the pull-out at the top of Hardscrabble 4 x 4 section of the White Rim.


Bolts are old school home made aluminum L stock so you might opt to include the bolt kit... Thin gear including ball nuts and sliders might allow this to go clean.
