One move of 5.10d coming out of the final roof on a weird side-pull. Are you sure that the rotue described here is not 'Headrush?'
Problem is, if this line is big chief Arete, then what is the line between this and Killer Bee, just to the right? That climb there was better, and harder. You can do it to the anchors of the climb described here (10b) or keep going up and right past 3-4 more bolts passing a hand jam(14 in all?) to the top. One of the better climbs at the cliff. I think that is the real Big Chief, and the one described here is Headrush.

|agree with Tony B. the description is incorrect. Headrush starts in the corner under a tree while Big Chief Arete is just left of Killer Bee. See books.|
