Shibs cruising Revenge of The Werepig, making look...

Description 

Intricate side to side climbing with a fun crux at the roof.

Climb left of the bolt line for a good bit in the lower third of the route. Cool switch back right to the bolt line up just past half way. Bust out left again for a move or two before great jugs take you over the fun roof moves.


Protection 

8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor

One of the large jug holds just before the roof move was removed last week as it was loose anyway. There's still a big jug just right of where this one came off so the route wasn't significantly changed. It might be a bit more reachy now but not by much.

Visited the Monster Wall for the first time yesterday. Wow! What an amazing discovery. The routes are excellent in an absolutely ideal setting. We especially enjoyed Werepig, Pegasus, and Cyclops. Top shelf climbing for NM for sure and pretty damn good compared to just about anywhere. Nice Work!

A hold going past the first bolt came off last week, apparently. It's a bit more difficult now but still within the original .11 range. The route is "cleaning up" nicely. :-)

Thanks, John. Glad you had the chance to check it out. It's been a nice haven during the hotter months.

Fantastic! Great movement and varied climbing. High quality rock through most of the route. Although the top bit was not cleaned into submission, the rock was surprisingly solid even up there. Congrats and thanks for putting up such a stellar route!
