BETA PHOTO: The downclimb I took.


A few low angle slabby moves is followed by decent jamming before the angle drops off further.


From the north-south wash described in the area overview page, you'll see it on your right. The route faces westish.

Jam crack downclimb the left side in the back to access the gully that takes you back to the left of the route and rock.


Pro to 2". Gear anchor.

Would welcome confirmation from the FA party. I simply followed topo maps, GPS, and text descriptions from the JT West Vogel book.
Always possible I did a different route, in which case partly based on the conditions I may well have done an FA.

We did a bolted line in between the little pigs routes a long time ago called Pork Circus...2 or 3 bolts
Gear anchor....if you didn't see were at the wrong crag. The three little pigs crag is easily seen as you walk down the's the only real climbable crag with that description..

Thanks. The map seemed to indicate 3 separate formations. I thought the photo would have made it obvious if it was correct.
