Description:

Amazing route up the center of chiefshead. 1000 feet of climbing on superb alpine granite in a very remote area. Very run-out on 5.7-5.8 terrain, modestly run-out on 5.9, and well protected at the 5.10 and 5.11 sections.

5 out of 5 stars awesome

got used to the runouts pretty quick considering i led every pitch untill we got rained off with one to go. the second to last pitch was soaked and i didnt figure i had it in me to do the last 10b pitch in the rain so we bailed. Cant wait to go finish it someday.

5 out of 5 stars What fun!

We were worried given the runout reputation, but it turned out to be pure fun.

The runs are a little heady but once the adrenilne starts working it's over quick. One of the best in the Park.

Amazing! Highly recommended as long as you don't mind a few run-outs.
