Pig's Nose used to be one of my favourite solos at Bowles. I did an easier variation, that I used to call Pig's Cheek, that missed the fierce top overhang by going diagonally left at the top. Whole route then a very pleasant 4b. I'm taking the rope up so that we can do the excellent Pig's Ear.

I was taking it up there to fix a top rope for the others in our group.
