Steep series of flakes that take the hardest, most direct line out the cave. Highest rating completed at Big Chief.


In between All Guns Blazing and Totally Chawsome, in the center of the cave.


4 bolts to fixed anchors

^^^^^^ So, did you send it? Would assume you did if you're posting about it. Some first hand beta would be appreciated. I belayed one of my old climbing partners, Joe Missick, the guy that did the fa, a couple of times when he was working it but missed the red point. Saw Joe do it a couple of times with one or two hangs before he redpointed it, but never saw anyone send it. Would be suprised if it ever has an onsite send, so sequential.

It might be hard/impossible to clip the anchors. I saw someone cruise the route and get shutdown trying to clip the chains. There appears to be a rock scar over the lip.
