Description 

Some bulging moves off the deck followed by awesome crimping up a slabby face. As you go up the climb becomes more verticle which leads to a cruxy finish to the anchors.

Location 

to the left of sweating bullets and to the right of burning toes.

Protection 

9 bolts plus draws for anchors.

nice route, one of the longer ones at Big Chief.

I believe a crucial hold may have broken off near the top of this climb. There was a chalked "X" below the first bolt to the right of a big flake. The flake didn't seem fragile and the rest of the route seemed fine except for a bit of pink rock between the last bolt and the chains. The final move is grades harder than the rest of the route. I recommend bringing up an extra sling to aid up that last bit if you can't free-climb it.
