A must do climb if you are on this side of the lake! Probably light for the grade but the fun factor is very high. Start at the base of the crack in the 10 foot high section of rotten rock to get a stance. Plug some gear and figure out a way to reach the huge jug on the overhanging face and then pull through the bulge and gain another stance (crux). From here, pull a small overhang and it's nothing but huge plated jugs to the top. The gear is abundant throughout the entire climb.


From the beach approach, head right (facing the lake) for about 100 yards until you reach the first nice section of cliff. Walk along the cliff passing a sport line and a dirty 5.7 (Flake and Bake). When you reach Big Bang, you'll know it.


Mostly stoppers and small cams. There's a few spots for some larger cams up to 4", but you don't need them. Shuts.
