Description:

In the tall, steep section of cliff, look for a blocky start followed by a well-spaced line of bolts up a steep wall. Continue above on easier rock to bolt anchors. Sykes calls it a "5.8 climb for 5.10 leaders."

3 out of 5 stars yikes!

crazy fun moves, but ill protected. definitely need a piece of gear to protect 30' of easier climbing above. was a surprise that top of climb was wet.

i went off-route to bolt on left and then cut back onto 'no pigs'. the four bolts for 'no pigs' go straight up. climbing that way is spooky unless you are crazy solid on the thin moves. like, crazy solid. there is big potential to hit ledges on a fall.

This climb was wicked fun. I finally sacked up to do it. It's a great outing, but I agree with Sykes that it is tricky for leaders breaking into 5.8. Should be regarded as a trad climb, even with its bolts.
