Description 

Big Grunt starts at the bottom of the obvious split in this large boulder (foreground) which sits atop Lunch Rock. A squeeze chimney start leads you to easier chimneying and eventually to the top.

If you ever listen to someone start this problem you'll understand why it has it's name. Those with large pectoral muscles are at a disadvantage. This is a fairly safe route to third class with a downclimb off the backside.

Are there bolts at the top?

If not, what type of gear would one need to set top rope?

Peter, there are bolts and links (was there last night,) but it might be an awkward TR. Not sure, probably belay from above would be best as well.
