Swine of the Times

5.10b, Trad, 100 ft (30 m), 2 pitches,  Avg: 3.2 from 5 votes
FA: unknown
Oregon > Mt Hood Nationa… > Swine (aka Enola Hill)


Swine of the Times climbs to the top of the obvious pillar on the Moonshine wall to a 2-bolt anchor and then moves up and left through a fun series of sidepulls and jugs.

P1 starts in a hand-sized crack on the left side of the prominent pillar before merging with Jethro around the third bolt.

P2 Follows a line of bolts up and left from the pillar. Optional gear (1-2"?) protects runout jugs between the 5th and 6th bolts.

Descent: Climbers can lower off of the anchors to the ground with a 60m. You might be able to rap from the anchors with 60m. Our team sent the leader back to the top of the pillar using a QD attached to the belay loop. The follower lowered off of the fixed biners on the anchor.


This starts in the obvious crack up the left side of the prominent pillar on the Moonshine wall.


P1: a few hand-sized pieces and 4 QDs; 2-bolt anchor
P2: 6 QDs and optional hand-sized piece; 2-bolt anchor

[Hide Comment] You can rappel from the top of the second pitch with a 60m rope and have several feet of rope to spare. I'm not sure about 1 to 2" gear but a #.75 C4 works nicely for the optional piece on p2.

[Hide Comment] A little more care required to place the #1 cam, but a .75 would work perfect. Could also skip the placement if you're comfortable. It is on easier terrain and a fall without the piece would be clean. Great route Aug 8, 2021
