Description:

A fun steep route in a wild location. Start underneath the obvious slot. Technical climbing leads to the slot. Head out the top of the slot into some great moves and then run to the top on jugs. A really fun and varied route.

4 out of 5 stars response to Climball

Luke, Hard Day is for sure in my top five fave routes. However, I would have to say that Orifice Politics is slightly better; only because it's longer and has more knee baring, heel hooking, and hip scuzzing. For me, there's just more climbing on O.P.
