Description

The Center Wall hosts a number of Big Chief's most popular routes and generally covers Pow Wow to War Paint. If you're looking for solitude, seek elsewhere.

Getting There

Follow the approach directions on the main Big Chief page. After dropping through the notch, head left for a few minutes, passing the Three Towers Wall and the Center Cave. The Center Wall is just past the Center Cave on your left.
