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.
