The current Picture of the Week shows Alex Ling on the first pitch of Pigs Might Fly at Boar's Head near Katoomba. It's the first pitch of a 3 pitch climb next to another one by the name of Razorback. Originally, Alex was supposed to climb Razorback while I did Pigs Might Fly but decided that the beginning was such a heap of choss, it was not worth the risk. Anyone has done it? Is it worth it?

Pig Might Fly was a lot of fun with a solid first pitch and a fun second one. As for the cleaning of Razorback, Alex started the job but soon gave up...
