Description 

Goes up the prow just right of Itching to Climb.

This is a fun climb with two burly moves before the second bolt. Not sure if you would stay off the ground if you blew the clip at the 2nd bolt.

Don't like the bouldery moves to the second bolt? Here's a way to sort of lead this climb. Climb Itchin' and on the way down, hang a draw on the second bolt of Hog Nose, clip the rope, pull the rope and voila, you have a TR protecting the crux. Cruise your way to the top on lead.

Good climb. Definitely not a 5.11C though. A 5.10c/d rating would be more accurate.

I would agree. Its not a bad climb but for sure not 11c, closer to 10b/c in my opinion.
