Drew Hayes on Pigs in Zen


Start out with some 5.11- climbing up to second bolt. If you fall near the second bolt, you will probably hit the ledge below or the ground. I would strongly recommend working out the moves on top-rope before committing on lead.

Take a quick rest, then prepare to fire up on some tiny crimps and sidepulls for the next 20 feet. Regain your composure and finish up the final easy runout to the anchors.

You can place a .75ish cam between the 1st and 2nd bolt and sling it to take the consequences out. Really fun route and I agree with 13a

Went back today. I placed a #1 C4 and it does make the move safer. Thanks!

In my opinion, this is the best hard sport route at the Dump. The crux is wild for sure!
