Description

The first and second pitches can be combined into one pitch but there will be significant rope drag.

First Pitch: Starts off with low grade slab climbing with a few chicken heads then gradually gets steeper at the crux before turning left and heading towards the chains.

Second Pitch: Climb up the 3 bolt chimney while trying to avoid getting stuck in it. The chains are at the top of the chimney, or you can scramble up a bit further to another set of chains (at the top of Satori) that can be rappelled off.

Optional summit pitch: climb above the pitch 2 belay anchor up to the summit via the obvious ridge line. There are a couple of bolts to clip into along the way. Once you get to a false summit, scramble up one last ledge to the true summit and look for the belay station above Northern Aggression which is slightly north east. *Summit rappel note: a 70m rope reaches the ground but a 60m rope will reach a slab near the bottom and then its an easy walk down.

Location

The obvious large chimney that runs up the southwest corner of the Big Rock

Protection

5 bolts on the bottom section with rapel rings and an anchor station. 3 bolts in the chimney with your choice of chains on the chimney section.
