Eric Hirst at the start of Rice krispies (5.10c).


The flake just R or Strange Boar, sharing the same start. Listed in Sky Valley Rock and in the old Clint Cummins guide. Re-cleaned and top anchor replaced Feb/Mar 2012. Rated 10b in most guides, but the hollowness of the flake just below the anchors will give many leaders pause. Tread lightly as you pull the final roof, or bypass this with a couple delicate moves up chickenheads to the left.

Variation (Pork Fried Rice): 10c *** Continue past the anchors to join Strange Boar after its crux. An exciting and varied pitch.


Shares a starting belay with Strange Boar. See Baby Tapir for overview photo.


Light rack to 3", including thin cams for the start.

Nice laybacking up a thin crack that widens to hands at the top.
It's short, but as it doesn't have any good rests (except a little stemming at the bottom), it will work your arms and fingers.

Also, the rock is really rough, so you might want to tape up your hands.
