Thanks, Adam. I saw on another site (Summitpost, maybe?) Bob Gaines mentioning that the lines/variations for "Fote Hog" are incorrect in the Miramontes book. Jan 29, 2016
The photo is correct. Miramontes book is wrong Jan 26, 2016

I don' think that is actually the line for Fote Hog. As far as I know Fote hog goes basically straight up from the tree and enters the patina near that bush.

I could be wrong. But in the Miramontes guide, going up over the roof on the patina jugs like that is a different variation that goes at 5.9. Just sayin', but I notice on a lot of these photos people are calling this the crux of Fote Hog.

Any grizzled veterans out there care to chime in with your nuggets of wisdom? :-) Jan 26, 2016
