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


This is a slightly less-than-vertical limestone route with lots of pockets, many jugs, and plenty of positive footholds.

There isn't really a defined crux, but the bit between the 2nd and 7th bolts is harder than the rest. There is one bulge that might get vertical, but it isn't particularly difficult.


This is the right-most route on the west face of Hard Rock (where the hard stuff is - as opposed to the south-west face and south face).


7 bolts, chain anchors.

28Sep06: Definitely not Punch the Clock - Drew Bedford set me straight.
16Jul06: I originally had this named Punch the Clock; I'm now convinced that I was wrong.

Original comment:

I'm not completely convinced that what I've described above is really Punch the Clock. When I climbed it (twice) I thought it seemed a little easier than 5.10a, but I'm not really a good judge.

Anyway, I counted routes on the west face of Hard Rock and I counted 9 (it was getting dark, so I could be off). The Ruckman topo shows 7 (not counting 2nd pitches). The route immediately to the left of this one looks like I could climb it, which probably means it is 10-ish. I'll try it one of these days and if it seems harder than the route described above, but I can climb it, that probably means that it is Punch the Clock (and not the 11b in the topo) and that this one is a newer route added after the Ruckman guide. If so, I'll edit this route name/description.

Of course, if someone knows for sure, just comment here or send me a message and I'll fix it.

I, too, was confused about which route this was, but after climbing it I don't think it can be any harder than 5.9, so I am reasonably confident that this is not Punch the Clock. It is hard to tell, however, which of the two routes to the left is actually Punch the Clock.
