Description 

Pitch 1 - 5.8
Starts off with a bouldery move that isn't as hard as it looks. Then meander up the face with good holds. Follow the bolts to a small alcove under an overhang with a nice 2 bolt belay anchor.

Pitch 2 - 5.10b
Looking up you should see 4 bolt lines. Perfect Storm is the right most one. Climb up and right through the small roof at a crack. Thin climbing follows the bolts to the top. Once you reach the top, there is a 2 bolt anchor on top of a large boulder that is set about 10 feet back from the edge.

Rappel from the rap station on the north end of Big Rock.

Location 

This climb is about in the middle of the west face on a large ledge. Perfect storm is the bolt line of the left, Council of Elders is the bolt line on the right.

Protection 

Lots of quickdraws. The 2nd pitch has 12 bolts.
