Description Suggest change

[The full name of this route is actually "An act of strange boar, a group of mysteries of frenchwoman, a ship called black rock, and a hatch."]

Strange Boar is the spectacular dihedral just R of Baby Tapir and just L of Rice Krispies. It's reminiscent of Slow Children, but thinner and more sustained.

If you have pudgy fingers, you may find this route to be a lot harder than 11a. Daintier folks, however, may think it's only 5.10. Either way, climb it. It's a pretty dang classic line.

Location Suggest change

See Baby Tapir overview photo. Start at a comfortable ledge (2 bolts) a short distance above the trail.

Protection Suggest change

Pro to 1". Mostly thin cams and small/medium stoppers. A single 60m rope will get you down. 

Ends on a a two bolt anchor with large chains
