This is not a rock route. The fact that you are looking for spots to climb on a college campus points that you probably don't care if it's rock or not. It's something interesting to climb on. The staircase is turquoise and made of old rot-iron. It's ~28 steps spiral upward to a locked door. Grab the back of the 10th or 11th stair to start. Campus you way to the last stair using only your hands and the steps above you.

Too easy? See how many times you can campus up and down.


This ascends the middle/tallest staircase on the eastern-facing side of Old Main.
