Another great corner corner with a couple of short roofs and a cool chockstone down low. Finish on at a tree.


Down past Rogers Corner before B & B.


Trad. Tree for anchor.

This and Guzzler are a great duo for the 5.8 leader like myself. Though the summer swamp did test my mental tenacity a bit on this one in the section after the roof.

I think this was my first or second lead, ever, almost 30 years ago. Seemed mellow compared to the other one (some 5.7 or 5.8 fingercrack where I almost decked), the Pig is not sustained, pretty good pro and easy to hang around and place it.
