1st Pitch; 100 ft
Start up the wide crack to the top of the flake, can use a #3 Camalot here but not necessary. Continue up the steep thin crack (crux) to a right facing dihedral. From here angle right on easier ground to the anchor for the bolted routes or continue up another dihedral to belay at the large tree.

2nd pitch; 120 feet
From the belay follow the crack past a fixed piton. The Sandia Classics guide mentions the start is difficult to protect, but I didn't find it any worse than other Sandia climbs at the grade. Continue up the crack for a ways until the crack gives way to block terrain. Angle slightly right on better than it looks rock to a slight notch. Top out and belay off the tree.


Continue past the La Luz mine passing Insane Clown Posse and Sister Sledge, 10 ft left of Sister Sledge is the starting flake of Miss Piggy.


Standard Sandias rack up to #2 camalot. Can place a #3 at the start if desired. Could probably fit it on the second pitch as well if needed.
