Approach as for Big Man on Campus. This is the right route. A thin finger jam to start off, with a nice undercling to pop the roof. Watch out for a mini-horn that feels excellent to finish off the roof on. It is so thin, that it may come off soon.


2 bolts at the top for the anchor. 3 draws and 1 runner for the climb. Rappell off

Great route. Don't let the start of this one intimidate! It's a great .9 for the average 5.9 leader, the first bolt may look a little high, but it's super to reach.
If those finger crack moves don't look fun, they can be easily skipped. Feb 5, 2015

We were able to rap off the top anchors with a 70m all the way to the ground. A great way to avoid the sketchy down climb. Apr 21, 2016

Whoever took the TR anchor from the Big man on campus anchors I'd really like to get that back... PM me if you have it. May 24, 2018

Anchors were single chain link with worn biners the other night. Would be great to add a few links of chain to this anchor which is shared with Big Man on Campus. Jun 22, 2018

Replaced both well worn biners with a pair of Metolius quicklinks on each link of chain to allow for smooth lowering/pulling your rope without heinously twisting your rope. Anchor bolts themselves appear to be the originals from 1990 with the old school stacked washer setup and could be a decent candidate for the SLCA and WARI experts to address when time and resources allow.
