Time to get schooled on great mixed lines! The trail leading to the Climbology area first leads to Accelerated Climbology. To approach Advanced Geir and Pigtails and Powerdrills, hike up from Accelerated Climbology and locate the hand rope protecting the sketchy stuff. Follow the hand rope up and right along exposed terrain. The rope ends at the base of the rock between Pigtails and Powerdrills (right) and Advanced Geir (left).

When heading up to Advanced Geir, Pigtails, and Flake-up Exam, consider gearing up/leaving your packs near Accelerated Climbolgy. Negotiating the hand-line is not so much fun with a pack.
