Description

I don't know what this route is called (for lack of a better name I called it "Hogwild Mystery Route #2"). I don't know how hard it is - it felt 5-easy. This is a nice easy romp up a (mostly) clean slab. Good rock quality. Could use some traffic/brushing. I hope somebody who knows about this route can improve on this post.

Location

About 120 yards to the left (Northeast) of the start of Better with Bacon. Look for bolts high on the face above a small flake at the start. You can see where a pathway was cleaned through the moss. To descend, rap from bolted anchor.

Protection

4 draws and whatever you like to set up a top anchor if toproping. Let's not gloss over that point: 4 bolts in 100 feet is not your typical sport route. And some of the holds have a little dirt/grit. 30-50 feet is a long way to cartwheel down a slab bouncing off of dikes if you slipped on the grit. You're not going to die on this route, but you could get pretty beaten up. There is a solid, unworn mussy hook anchor on the top. A 60 meter rope should just make the round trip.
