Go to the Northeast corner of Chipeta Hall. Step up onto the sloping red bricks about 4 feet up laybacking off the corner. The crux is turning to the other side. My personal favorite of all the buildering problems in Gunnison. My dad showed me this one. It always seems to give whoever tries it a good laugh. Have fun!


Chipeta Hall is located on the Southwest part of campus.

Hi Phil,
James passed away two years ago this month by tragic hit and run while in Lake Tahoe. A friend of mine just shared this post. I have no doubt Chipeta Corner has been done since the building was put up. Stay cool, my friend.

Actually the climbing was pretty much the same.
It was the climbers who were different.

I was shown this problem in the spring of '72 by Chuck Tolton and Gunnison legend Charlie Pitts. We spent a whole evening buildering Chipeta, Taylor Hall, the OLD library, and the then "new" library. Jun 9, 2012
Hi, James. So you are John's son? For the record, this problem had been done at least a decade before your old man came to WSC. Tell him I said Hi. I loved doing this buildering problem back in my day. Very delicate balance. Thanks for posting up. Jun 2, 2012
