The Sheriff's Badge is the large wall on the Chief between the North and South Gullies marked by a distinctive white "badge". The wall is fairly difficult in nature with the easiest climbs in the 5.10 range. It is bounded on the left by the magnificent Angel's Crest, and the uber-classic Daily Planet runs strait up the badge.
From the Apron parking lot, walk down the forest road about 600 meters. There are two paths, the right leads to the base of the Sheriff's Badge, while the left leads to the base of Angel's Crest. Both are fairly overgrown, depite the traffic, so look closely, they are easy to miss.
