5 out of 5 stars Great climb

This is an excellent and challenging climb, deserves at least one star! After seconding another leader when I climbed it a year ago, leading Pigsty this time was really fun. The face section has good pro if you make the right route choices; the big crack up top is a sustained section, but with good pro (big cams) and hand jams where you need them. Don't be tempted to try and bypass the bulge by climbing the corner on the right side of it, you'll be sorry!
