Description

A fun, long pitch. Be careful clipping the bolt above the small ledge - you do not want to fall there.

Location

West Face of Big Rock, to the left of the chimney. You'll climb to a ledge with a small tree/bush and then it's straight up!

Protection

All bolted, bring an alpine draw or two for the bolts up high to reduce rope drag.

Interesting climb, I bailed on my initial attempt because I couldn't find my next bolt in the fading light at sunset. Things get run out further up and it felt sketchy at the time. Climbed it again the next morning and found the bolt I was looking for originally, thanks to some beta from my partners.

Be very careful on the higher ledge. As previously mentioned, a fall from there would not be ideal. Oct 28, 2017

This is one of my favorite pitches in Spokane - Steep, exposed climbing at a moderate grade. One day the upper half will fall off, but I will keep climbing it until then! Sep 6, 2016

Fun climb. Just watch out when lowering. A 60 meter rope will get you near the ground but you have to down climb a move. Jun 29, 2016
