Paul on General Porcupine


Updated: Was told this rock has been climbed before. It was covered in moss in Spring 2015, so we cleaned it and climbed this line. Leaving it here for posterity. Will change name, grade, FA if asked to.

Played around on this boulder and came up with Private Porcupine line (been done before?). Was there with Paul who spotted more holds and we worked to connect them. General Porcupine is the result.

Sit start low left on a thumb down crimp and sloper gaston. Move right and up and right again along seam. Crux is leaving the seam for crimp holds out right before the finishing jug moves. Good fun.

Proposing V3-4. Heel hook was key for me, interested in seeing alternate beta.


Located along the path right between Payback and Absolution.
