BETA PHOTO: The Forgotten Wall. Next-to-west-most wal...
Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is a steep, almost vertical climb that is mostly pockets and jugs.

The technical crux is probably getting to and clipping the first bolt; for me the harder part was clipping the chains because the pockets get smaller and scarcer and you have to climb a bit higher than you'd like in order to comfortably clip them.

There is an interesting, rounded, wooden "hold" just after and to the right of the second bolt: it is the remains of a shrub stem.


Location 

This is the left-most of three routes on the south-facing, next-to-west-most section of Hard Rock. The least-strenuous way to get there is to follow the trail when it turns right to go to the main Hard Rock wall (west-facing). Go north (left) along the main wall; you will turn west and by staying along the base of the rock you will end up at the base of these three newer Hard Rock routes.

Alternatively, don't turn right to the main Hard Rock area and instead continue straight to the base of the wall you see ahead of you as you come up the trail to the Hard Rock/White Wave/Escape Buttress areas.


Protection 

5 bolts, chain anchors.

worth doing once because of the cool wooden hold/stump. the crux is probably the start. as the info says clipping the chains is a bit nerve racking since the holds aren't quite where you want them. the grade seems pretty accurate.

Getting to the first two bolts seems more like a 5.9 but it gets a bit easier higher up. wooden stump is definitely a welcome hold.

Careful on this route! I think a fall while trying to clip the second bolt could be serious. Also think its more like 5.9.
