Description 

Usually shady. Never crowded. Mostly solid rock. Home to the amazing continually overhanging constant left leaning hands to fist crack named 'Pigs in Space.'


Getting There 

First left facing wall/corner to the right of Calvins Slabs.

Due to different names for areas here's a detailed explanation -
From left to right when facing the rock (north to south on the map):
Jim's Throne (farthest North/left prominent pillar)
Then
Pillar #2 (another prominent pillar that is slightly shorter than Jim's)
Then
Calvin' Slabs (another prominent and the final major pillar/formation until the Pigs in Space wall)

Pigs in Space is the dominating (there are several, Pigs has a chockstone in it up high) left leaning hands to fist crack (face climbing last 10ft) that starts at average chest height and goes to the top.

This is actually part of the "Coroner`s Area" where other routes exist. An area for the Coroners Area should have been created and pigs in space just a route. It is what it is. Just know this when compiling info from other sources.
