DescriptionThis medium sized boulder is home to a number of problems from V4 to V11 but the one that gets all of the attention is the suberb Pigpen (V4) which climbs a 10 foot roof crack before finishing up a slanting thin hand/off finger crack - if the constant wear and tear of face problems have taken their toll on your skin perhaps this could be just the ticket to save your tips.
Getting ThereOne way to approach the Pigpen Boulder is to head somewhat east along the northen end of Cyclops Rock and then cut southeast between some large formations until you reach the boulder which sits at the southeast corner of the right formation (The Potato Head).
Another approach from Hidden Valley Campgound is to follow a trail along the south end of Cyclops Rock and then continue along to the backside where you'll encounter the Manx Boulders. From the Manx Boulders head in a northerly direction where you'll find this small boulder with an east-facing low cave. The approach from Hidden Valley takes 5-10 minutes.
