The Sun shines on the Bulletheads

Description 

The Bulletheads have many excellent routes to offer with fewer crowds because of its interesting and complex ledge system that allows you to link different pitch combinations together. The Bulletheads south area is just as sunny as the Smoke Bluffs and is less exposed to wind; giving this area the longest climbing season on the Chief.

Getting There 

Primary access is through the climbers camp ground. Follow signs from highway 99. and park as for the Grand Wall. Walk through the campground and 50' past the custodian's house, turn left towards the cliff to reach the base.

Slot Machine 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  North America : Canada : ... : Bulletheads South
This is one of the best 5.9's in the area and sees heavy traffic. From the stiff start in the begging to the endless hand jams this climb is a must do.The crux is located immediately off the ground but good gear is at your waist. The climbing easy off quiet a bit after that. Climb the obvious crack from the middle ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
