Perin Blanchard on Punch the Clock.

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Easy climbing to the first bolt then overhanging until the third bolt. Mostly pockets with some jugs; the crux is probably either between the first and second bolts or between the second and third depending on your height and reach.

Carefully placed feet are key; faith that there'll be another good hold coming helps as well.

There is a second pitch rated 5.12a/b; I'm not likely to climb that anytime soon so someone else will have to describe it.


Punch the Clock is the third route from the right on the west face of Hard Rock.


5 bolts to chain anchors.

This time I'm sure this is Punch the Clock - I contacted Drew Bedford and he set me straight. Previously I thought at various times that the routes I added (and now listed) as "Unknown Right" and "Unknown Left" were Punch the Clock.

fun route, interesting moves. the section between the first and second bolt is definitely the crux. there are some spacey sections of bolting where the climbing is easier.

This route felt about the same difficulty to me as primal magic. The crux section started above the first bolt and ended around the 3rd bolt.
