Whoa... I can hardly believe that this would ever be reported. As the name suggests, Jim called this "Ungrateful Pig". A fitting epithet following the slog we did through several inches of snow to do this route. Jan 19, 2012

Hey Darryl, what a small world climbing is! I was looking for newbie-friendly trad routes "close" to Philly and PNG ended up on the short list. Once I did my research I figured I should share it here. It's pretty funny being the only route at Eagle Cliffs on MP at the moment. Jan 25, 2012
