Pigsty at Jamestown...in the summer.
This underrated Rich Gottlieb line is a really excellent moderate. It includes some interesting choices to make on route finding, and a big crack near the top that's harder than it looks.
Start on some slabby face climbing with sparse pro, moving up to a bulge/shallow roof. Surmount the bulge and continue up to a fairly wide crack (fist or wider); climb through the crack and on to the top.
A short distance left of Yum Yum Tree; watch for a wide blackened crack near the top of the cliff.
A standard rack including a good range of cams up to 4" for the crack up high. Bolted anchors.
Pigsty, 5.8, Jamestown, AL.
