Some areas require a guide.


This climb is aptly named as climbing this is probably like wrestling a hog.

Sit start squeezing an arete and work your way up and right into some handjams. Make a big move around the prow to obtain some good holds and work your feet out from underneath the boulder and up by your hands. From here wrestle your way up to make a big move to good hueco's above.

It felt like the wall next to start is considered off for feet but ok to hand jam against and fingerlock against higher, not sure on this however.


In the A-Frame area, directly opposite the Baby Baker boulder. Crawl through the entrance and "The Hog" will be on your left side after the corridor opens up. Shares start with "The Hog Left". "Cast Iron" is 10ft further down the corridor.


Pads, kneebar pads optional

Interesting, I was under the impression that the Handjams/side-wall was off entirely? It goes at about v5 without touching any of that anyhow.

Also pretty sure the whole "handjam" wall is off for both hands and feet. It goes at V5 without it.
