The entrance view of Hogs Pen


Beautiful, shady area graced with TONS of good rock. Hogs Pen holds the most potential out of any spot at Cedar lake. Small caves, to sick cracks, to brutal traverses, with some highballs thrown in the mix for sure. The area is broken into two sections. The main spot is the first group of rocks and cliffs you come to walking in. If you continue walking on this path however, and cruise straight past these boulders you will come to another big, well featured cliff face with several smaller boulders scattered on the ground around it. The latter has definite top roping possibilities. Much development to be had here.

Getting There 

Walk directly past the trail up the hill that accesses the East Ridge Boulders. Stay on this as it passes some decent sized mossy cliffs. You will come to a clearing and the trail to the Pen will be well marked with a new sign posted on a tree in the middle of the clearing. Take that left, cross a creek and ascend directly into the heart of Hogs Pen.

40.55'28"N 74.27'46"W for the Hogs Pen. Up the hill are some short cliffs and scattered boulders which might have potential, but bad landings. We top roped off a tree at the tallest part of the cliff, about 35'. Took a bunch of lines which felt 5.9ish, and potential for a few hard routes up through the roofs. Noticed a very old rusty 1/4 inch bolt near the top, so it must have been climbed before!
