BETA PHOTO: H.R. Hardman, 5.8


This is the face route just left of the large block leaning against the northeast face.

Well-protected climbing on above average rock lead into an easy crack, making this a nice moderate route to seek out if in the area. The anchors are above and left atop White Collar Crime.

The name is a take-off on H.R. Haldeman, President Nixon's White House Chief Of Staff, who was involved in the Watergate Scandal and forced to resign.


4 bolts, anchors (all 3/8")
