This route would be classic at any Wisconsin crag. Climb first 2 bolts to an OK rest, a couple crux lie back moves take you to the left and up on crimpers to a jug just below the anchors. The real tough guys clip off the ledge just above the anchors.


4 bolts, chain anchors

The first 2 bolts have been hand tightened today. So, if you go up with this as a mission, bring something to tighten the bolts...

Bolts have been tightened, but still be weary in the future. Oct 27, 2009

Seemed similar in difficulty to Big Man on Campus to me, FWIW. Nov 11, 2008
this looks like a direct start of yeast...

yeast starts in the crack in the center of the face(watch for bats) then dance up drips to a 12" hole with a pinch flake in it. Then thru the bowling ball pockets to micro diheadral(crux). Then 3 or 4 balancy moves to grab the mud right where the overhang ends
