It's Better with Bacon is a good route on a nice slab on Hogwild. The star rating is for the first 3 pitches.

P1: start up a thin right trending crack. when it peters out, step right into another very thin right trending crack. The cracks are very thin, and take small nuts, but the moves are slab moves.

P2: Straight up a 5.6 slab past 3 protection bolts.

P3: Up a 12' crack to a bolted 5.6 slab. There is a 5.8 roof that must be surmounted at the end of the pitch, very fun!


Walk 100 yards past the beginning of the Hogwild until you see the two thin cracks of the first pitch that both trend up and right at a 45 degree angle, on a clean slab broken by good belay ledges.


bolts, gear to 1", small nuts and micronuts. All anchors bolted. You can rap the route with one 60m rope
