Scenic, not crowded and decent quality rock keeps climbers happy. Hog Heaven has enough to offer for a good few days of moderate to difficult routes.

The area can be divided into the main wall, upper wall, Fist Grease Boulder, some junky formation with two bolted lines (5.11 and 5.8) and the Thumbnail.

Getting There 

Follow the well marked trails and easy to read trail signage along with the occasional cairn and you can't get lost. Fast walkers should arrive at the routes in 33 minutes and slow folks might take 1 hour.

Fist Grease 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  Arizona : Central Arizona : ... : Hog Heaven
Not brave enough to go for the lead we set up a top rope and quickly realized that leading it might be safer....Either way we had a blast and no-one got hurt.Powerful moves start immediately and continue for a ways until you exit the fist sized crack into some funky and tricky climbing. The crack is solid and protectable for its entirety.Although I did not lead this gem it still ranks as one of my favorites in the McDowell's....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
