Shawn on Pigs in Zen.

Climbing in Red Rocks after heavy rain can permanently damage the rock! MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A beautiful line. Solo up the easy ramp to a corner below the roof. Make long, bouldery moves out and around and continue up the pumpy headwall. Lots of longer moves. Stout and sustained.

Protection 

Six bolts to anchors.

Stout 12b, especially at the bulge. Nice route, worth the hike.

Wow stellar route! *BETA* Clip the second bolt with a long draw so you can reach it from below the roof. Going over the roof get a high right foot and lay back to go up right hand to a decent crimp jug. A few easier moves then the rest is 11a
