This route was put up over several years by the late Jim DiNapoli, and he did the first ascent in the summer of 2012. The route is just left of Skyline Pig and shares Pig's anchors. Start with the first few moves of Skyline Pig, and then follow the bolt line up and left. The difficulty increases significantly after the third bolt and does not let up until the anchors.


12 bolts plus anchors.

Such a fun rock climb! The first 3/4 of the climb is fun 5.11 with some harder moves peppered in. The last 20 feet is by far the hardest part. Surprisingly weird slab. Dec 3, 2017

Jordan, as with most things Jim did, there is a story to this route, but I didn't want to put too much out on the web. It would be better discussed over a climb or a beer (or both). I'm finishing up the administration of Jim's estate, and posting this route was one of the last things he asked me to do. With all the political junk surrounding the Garden and all the egos involved, Jim was hesitant to post a new route, claim the first ascent, and grade the route as the most difficult in the Park.

I've always wondered what that line was when climbing Skyline Pig. Thanks so much for putting this up. Nov 26, 2014

Thank you for adding this, Dave. I was thinking it about it last year but didn't know if Jim would have wanted it. Correct me if I'm wrong, didn't he originally bolt this in '99 or so, free it, then got the hangers pulled? That's the story I remember hearing. I specifically recall him saying this was the first 13a in Garden (before Ryan's Inferno) which would have to date it back to late '90s? Can you shed any light?
And yes, Ben, it's very hard.... Anarchy is right of Skyline, whereas this is left, as you've found out.... Nov 19, 2014

Thank you so much for putting this up. I tried this thinking it might be Anarchy. Got to that third bolt and thought, "This is crazy!" Now I know why, Thanks. Nov 11, 2014
