This route can be done in one pitch but there will be significant rope drag.
First Pitch: Starts off with low grade slab climbing 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 that can be rappelled off.
Optional summit pitch: with a 70m rope, you can continue to the summit and rappel off the bolts above "Northern Aggression" (60m rope will not reach the ground).
The obvious large chimney that runs up the southwest corner of the Big Rock
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.
