North America, United States, Colorado, Chief's Head, Northeast Face

Chief’s Head, Northeast Face. Jeff Lowe and I made a second route on the northeast face of Chief’s Head, “Risky Business.” (IV, 5.11 + ). It climbs just right of the center of the face for ten pitches. Four were of 5.10 to 5.11 range and the crux was 5.11 + , an overhanging crack system. The rock was solid and though the run-outs were long, protection was good.
