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


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!


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

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.

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!
