This is kinda like 3 Pigs, but longer. Just follow the pin scars up. You can pinch some of them too. It can be pumppy, but it turns to a slab towards the top. Another problem is there are so many holes so keep bumping up and switch hands until you find the better ones.


The right of the two pin scar cracks.


You could trad lead this with some small gear. C4's are too big for most of the holes. You'd have to use master cams or TCUs and tri cams.

To set up a TR, head left and up to the top. You can put a hex behind a boulder and use some long webbing. There is also a place right by the lip for some cams in a horizontal crack and there is a stud off to the side you can cinch off.

I would not recommend leading this one - due to the low PSI of the rock. Apr 12, 2012
