After the hill on lower ladies there is a fork in the trail, Big Stupid is the right trail. The Big Stupid came into existence as an alternate route from that point where the trail forks, possibly because the option on the left—the continuation of Ladies down to the Baden-Powell and Lower Ladies—is steeper and more technical than the line on the right, but also because of the draw of the namesake of the newly-revamped trail: a massive exposed rock face with numerous lines—one of those being Big Stupid. You'll find a couple of natural kickers built into small doubles and a new ladder bridge drop.
