  • Description 

    If you've got some Garden choss-climbing leads under your belt, the dangerously loose start yields some decent Garden crack climbing.


    This is approximately 65 meters left of Skyline Pig.

    I noticed there wasn't much mentioned about this climb. I climbed it a few years back, after 2 bolts were added to protect the initial 40 or 50 ft. I found the bolts to be misleading, I was back to groundfall potential, commiting to flexing flakes, before I got my first decent piece. I would have backed off, if it wasn't for the fact that downclimbing seemed much more dangerous. A real butt puckering experience. I also think that it was not much fun, just dangerous. We also climbed it in 2 pitches, finding a comfortable belay halfway through.

    @davelewis. You have more chops than most.

    Scary and fun are both subjective descriptions for this route.

    But it is, no doubt, dangerous.

    Well done.

    Some less than admirable person removed the hanger on the first bolt, so if you intend to clip it, bring a nut and hanger.
