Description 

Really cool boulder 100 feet straight back from Fat Bastard...looks like a pig from the front. Amazing prow that could have a really hard problem. Easy problem lookers right of prow, some slab problems along the side and two fun sit starts on the back side.

On the Swine quarters side, I've started cleaning off the rail along the top of the boulder. This should make a good traverse from left to right. Have at it.

Also might be a fun one starting as a sit way left of Ham bone and working up the lip to the top...
