A great little route.

Stemming to a couple of lieback moves, followed by a nervy slab to the top.


East side, right edge.

This used to be rated 5.6 in the old guide. If this is VO then the Three Pigs is a V2.

I agree, and I've changed the rating.

This is one of the very oldest boulder problems at Stoney Point, and it is still with us because of the robust nature of the large features it attacks. In the 1960's this was considered a sort of Gateway problem to the harder routes, like Boot Flake. I'm quite sure this was first done in the 1930's.
