Big Rock is currently closed to climbing.



This is a top-rope variation to the two bolted climbs of the southwest face. It avoids the crux of either climb (with itÂ’s own crux low on thin edges and smears) as well as the easy holds, until you reach the patina. Start on the face between the bolts, climbing straight up on very small holds. Once the patina is reached, this climb becomes more or less the same as the climbs on either side, utilizing the same holds, as all the climbs of the southwest face come together. A nice, fairly sustained variation to the bolted routes. Rappel to descend.
