Description [Suggest Change]

Pigs in Space is the dominating (there are several, Pigs has a chockstone in it up high) left leaning hands to fist crack (face climbing last 10ft) that starts at average chest height and goes to the top. It is overhanging the entire way. Protection is plentiful but beware that there is potential to fall onto some boulders; mitigate this risk by placing ample pro.

Note: there are face holds along the way if you wish to use

Location [Suggest Change]

Smack in the middle of the wall!

Protection [Suggest Change]

Camalot sizes: 1, 2, 3 and 4 for the crack and up higher you have options (nuts, hexes, cams, etc)

Photos

Burly squared, in particular if you don't use the rocks to the left.

Agree on the need to protect frequently to avoid hitting the outcrops not he left.

This and Nasty Crack are the two best crack lines at this crag. Apr 5, 2014
