Big Dipper

Description 

Just left of Standing Ovation is an inconspicuous flared-chimney. The crux is short and tricky. A background in chimney and off-width pays dividends. Grunting seems to help too. Big Dipper is easy to try on top-rope via the Standing Ovation anchor.


Protection 

Gear to 2.5". Save a C4 #.4 and #.75 for the back of the chimney.
