This is 2nd line of 4 in the upper-middle section. The route starts out in a flat alcove belay area that has 4 other bolted lines. The first pitch moves over some blocks which give way to slab climbing on the way to the anchor. The second pitch continues up the slab and through 2 roofs and continues on to a more vertical top section just before the anchors. The second pitch is 5.9 and tops out. Don't miss the second pitch as it is excellent climbing!
Per Rick Karden: Porcupine Rock is the large rock face that you can see on the left just after turning onto the Montezuma Road. The best way to reach the base of Porcupine is to park across from it and walk West down the bike path towards Keystone. Look for a trail heading off the bike path just past the power tower. Follow the mining cut/trail until you run into the screefield and the cut ends. Turn left up the hill at this point onto the switchbacking trail. Once you reach the base of Porcupine Rock from the trail, head up and right into a flat alcove like belay area.
