Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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.
