Weekend Whipper: Grand Fall on the Grand Wall
It must feel good to reach the chains of the Sword Pitch (5.11a pitch 5) on the classic Grand Wall (Grade III 5.11 A0) on the Chief in Squamish, B.C. After all, you've just polished off the technical crux of this 1,000-foot route. But if you're too pumped to clip in, reaching the chains while run out above a small cam might be terrifying!
