Description Suggest change

Consistently challenging climbing on a vertical face. Watch for loose, flaky rock just after the third bolt and towards the top. Still, this is a relatively clean route for the Hellgate. Don't forget to top out on this route, the view is fantastic. There is a bit of a runout between the last bolt and the anchor so be on your toes.

Location Suggest change

Head up the "Shooting Gallery" between Towers Two and Three. The Big Chill is the third bolted line from the left up the gully of Tower Two on the gold colored wall. The belay ledge is rather small.

Note: The Ruckman Guide shows this to the right of Social Realism, but it's wrong.

Protection Suggest change

9 Bolts to a 3 bolt anchor with slings (shared with Social Realism to the right).
