Climb up the south side of the West Penguin past 9 bolts to mussy hooks at the top of the formation.

I don't quite get the "PG" rating. I'm basically a chicken and found it reasonable. HOWEVER, a short person will find the crux pretty dang hard. My wife--5'3"--ended up pulling a draw at the crux because she just couldn't reach the holds. So height does matter on this one. Overall, great fun!
PS: On most of the routes in the Hills, I stick-clip the first bolt. I don't see any point in risking a ground-out on these sport climbs.

Agreed with your comment regarding the Pg13 rating. Went back and changed it since I haven't a clue why I added it. Fat finger editing? ;)
