Big Chief arete – 5.11a

36m / 118ft, 15 bolts

Description: edit

Big Chief Arête climbs the blocky, lichen covered prow that defines the namesake area of the Center Wall, just down trail from The Three Towers. The route is long (15 bolts), passing the Funambulist anchor at a midpoint along the way, but contains multiple rests (some no hands), ultimately finishing just above the anchor to the nearby Head Rush.
