This is the main attraction. A few hard sport climbs which are very easy to top rope. Developed back in the day by Steve Glotfelty and Doug Mishler. A few of the bolts are kinda sketchy.

Getting There 

After turning of the Hwy, head west and set the trip meter. At 0.2 miles stay right, at 0.7 miles stay left, around the 1.1 mile, stay left. At 1.5 miles head right. The Pig and Little House is at the 2.5 mile mark. Basically, when you turn off the highway, you will see a big canyon in front of you. That is not were you want to go. You want the canyon just to the south of it.

Climbing Season

What's with all the hangerless bolts at the top?? Are people stealing them or something?

Nick, a lot of the hangerless bolts are from rappelers and other very strange goings-on at Pig (Adidas model shoots). I've also taken some that didn't make any logical sense. But there are a lot of new bolts out there!

Also, was out there yesterday, and Plant Food was chipped down to maybe 11a. We didn't get on any other routes, so can't speak to them, but...who knows?
(Yes, yes, I know about the chipping on some routes from early days--this is new chipping)
Nice new bolts on most routes though--and huge hangers on Ton Ton--thanks to that person!
To the chipper, really? It was kinda funny, heading into the crux, then realizing, "Wait, why don't I ever use this giant hold? I've been a fool!" I'm sorry you did it, please don't do it anymore.
