The imposing overhang above and right of 'The Main Event', 'The Big Show' cannot be missed.
The wall overhangs at 45 degrees and most routes are about 30 meters long, making the climbing exremely strenous and pumpy. The Big Show is home to several famous routes including 'Pulse' Canada's first 5.14.

Getting There 

Walk past the Circus Wall to The Main Event and look up. Climb a low 5th crack up the left edge of the slab to the base of the overhang. There are several belay stations at the base of the wall.

Start up the corner at the left edge of the wall, and break out right up the first diagonal crackline as for 'Division Bell'. Where the crack peeters out for a couple meters go straight up through a 5.13 finger jamming crux to easier but pumpy climbing above. The last two moves can be a heartbreaker 'redpoint crux' for the desperately pumped. An Excellent route!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
