Description 

On the far right side of the boulder there is a smaller boulder that almost touches the lilypad. Behind this small boulder is a good rail. Start this problem by sitting down on the far left side of the rail, traverse right on the rail, squeezing between the problem you're climbing and the pointed rock at your back. When you reach the right side of the rail, reach up to a horrible sloper and top out. Hogs is a great problem that is only marred by the stupid small boulder I keep mentioning.

Are you reaching up with your left hand to the obvious slopers or right hand to something else?

I actually reach up left hand to a small little crimp to the left of the sloper, then slap the big sloper with your right hand, then go to the top.

The best version of this problem is Blake's new one. I can't remember the name right now, but Greg and I did it the other day and it was good. It stays left and does and excellent job of avoiding the pointy boulder to the right. Greg and I felt V5. Good job Blake.

Blake's problem--a combination of two V7s--is called "Pollyhogs." It's a good problem. But, V5? That's just plain ridiculous. If that's V5, then we need to regrade ALL the V5s on Baldy.

I think I called it V4 after I did it. It's not really a combination of two v7's. It skips the hardest parts of two v7's and you get to use the bad holds in their best positions. HOWEVER, I think it is the best line of the three. Super fun.

V4? Are you serious? That's comical.

Maybe I was getting carried away. Maybe it was just because I was so psyched to be climbing up there again. Maybe the moon was just so that the gravity was less that day. Maybe I'm retarded.

No, Greg. You are not retarded. You are retardedly strong, though. You just don't realize how strong you are, Greg. There's nothing wrong with that. Glad you enjoyed the climbing. Come back more often!
