Hardware Wall Rock Climbing
Michael Portanda on Gray Hound.
Nice shady limestone crag. Most routes are in the mid 5.12 range with a few harder and a few easier.
Turn on to Left Hand Fork
road. Follow the road until you reach the Friendship Campground
, continue and then pass the Spring Campground.
Keep going. You'll pass the Blacksmith Wall
on the right and about .5 miles further you'll come to the Right Hand Fork
road on the left. At this intersection continue for about 30 yards and find a place to park. From here, hike toward the stream on the right, cross it, and then find a trail that leads to the cliff. The stream crossing is just to the left of the horse pens. The first route that you come to is Native American Graffiti
Climbing Season For the Left Hand Fork area.

One of the longer(est?) routes of the crag. Overhanging for a long while and then tops out on not as easy as desired slab. Crux may be pulling onto the less than vertical section, though not one move in particular felt like a hard 12.Number 1 reason to do this route: There's a cave about 2/3 up the route. Hang out there for as long as you can before your belayer rips you out of it. The rock up high is phenomenal! ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

The Hardware Wall is located 5.9 miles from the left hand fork turn-off. Because of the dirt road it takes ~15 minutes to get there from the left hand fork turn-off. You will pass the Friendship campground at 3.6 miles, the Spring campground at 4.2 miles, the Blacksmith wall at 5.4 miles, then at 5.9 miles you will hit a "Y" in the road, take the right hand fork and drive another 50 feet to a pullout with a campfire ring where you park for the Hardware Wall. Cross the small stream and walk the 100 feet to the obvious wall. GPS for the parking is 41.667126, -111.626422.
