Pigsty, 5.8, Jamestown, AL.
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.

Just did this route last weekend. It is definitely worthwhile - a really nice route with a little bit of everything, and easy to protect. Unfortunately, it is dirty (hence the name). A brush is recommended! Maybe if it gets enough traffic, that won't be the case anymore.

everything seemed dry around us... but not in the pig pen!!! I agree with the previous post, it is a nice route, but that crack was so muddy it became a bit of a battle on lead. go for it, but be prepared to get dirty!
