Description

As you approach Porky's Wall, look for the tallest east-facing wall, which is slightly red in color and filled with many pockets and large cobbles. A chimney system is around the corner to the left of this face. The first bolt is about 20ft off the deck, but easy ramps lead up to it. The first clip is not a trivial clip, however, since a few thin moves must be made to reach it. It is a little runout to the second bolt. Angle up and left past a short finger crack to a horizontal crack below a small roof. Clip the last bolt, then crank to the top. This would be a two-star route if some of the loose rocks were cleaned.

Protection

5 bolts--no anchor on top. A large (4ft diameter) horizontal horn may be slung by the rope to rap off of, but it is difficult to pull the rope with all the friction.

A nice route that sees little action, as there is not much else around. Done for the day? On your way out stop by and give it a shot. Watch out for the bees in the summer, to the right of the route. Dec 5, 2001
