DescriptionLocated on the left side of the wall, Big Chief arete isn't really an arete for most of the climb. Instead, it ascends enormous clubic blocks that are either 45 degrees overhanging or 45 degrees slab. The climb is very similar in feel to its neighbor Killer Bee, but a little tougher because of a tricky roof about two-thirds of the way up. Vertigo will also be a factor, but its worth it!
Don't pay too much attention to the topo in Carville's book. He has the relative locations of the climbs right, but the rock features he has drawn in don't make sense to me.
