Access Issue: Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 Details

Description

Big House is located on John's Tower. To access this wall, just locate the 8 Ball formation and park near its base (per cstebbins024 the road going to the 8 Ball is permanently closed). The parking area is totally trashed with burnt up logs and broken glass.

Big House is north-facing and is about 30' to the left of Becker. It is very apparent from a distance and appears to split the wall in half. I thought this climb was excellent! Heel and Toe rated this climb a 5.7, but I think its rating is closer to 5.8+. The climb starts in a corner which moves up to a nice hand crack through an overhang/bulge (crux). After the bulge, the climb widens to OW then chimney and finishes at a double bolt/ring belay.

Protection

Pro extra hand size to #4 Camalot, 2 bolt/ring anchors.
