The west face currently has about 15 climbs on it. Almost all of them are 2 pitches in length and most of the climbs are bolted. Once you reach the top or ridge of big rock, work your way left (north) all the way to the very north end. There is a 2 bolt rappel anchor here. A 60 meter rope is recommended for the double rope rappel (a 50 meter could work in a pinch but would require some down climbing near the bottom).
Hike up the trail from Stevens Creek Trailhead. The first large rock is Big Rock. The west face is to the left.

The chains are at the top of the chimney, or you can scramble up a bit further to another set of chains that can be rapeled off....[more] Browse More Classics in WA
