The Sheriff's Badge is the large wall on the Chief between the North and South Gullies marked by a distinctive white "badge". The wall is fairly difficult in nature with the easiest climbs in the 5.10 range. It is bounded on the left by the magnificent Angel's Crest, and the uber-classic Daily Planet runs strait up the badge.
From the Apron parking lot, walk down the forest road about 600 meters. There are two paths, the right leads to the base of the Sheriff's Badge, while the left leads to the base of Angel's Crest. Both are fairly overgrown, depite the traffic, so look closely, they are easy to miss.

A full 30m of stemming and laybacks with most of the climbing in the 5.11 range. The crux is way up high where you encounter a bolt and a bit of a mystery move. Clip the bolt and go for it, easy to the anchors. A 60m rope BARELY makes it down. 5.12a, but easy for the grade, a good first 5.12 gear route.p2. Some old bolts and bigger crack climbing.
