California has the "hardest" bar exam? Questionable, at best. California allows, for good or ill, non-ABA accredited law schools to proliferate and some of these, um, bottom feeders do not produce a lot of graduates who are well-prepared to pass the bar.

Of course, passing the bar and practicing law effectively are two very different things. Just because you passed the bar does not mean you know how, in a practical sense, to be a lawyer, nor does failing the bar mean that you do NOT know how to practice law. Passing the bar means that you did sufficiently well to overcome a barrier to entry in the profession. It seemingly has little to do with success as a lawyer.
