Access Issue: bouldering is often illegal Details

Description [Suggest Change]

The first pitch of this climb goes up any of the shallow, wide hand cracks around the building. The front of the building (the east side) offers shorter cracks which are less risky to downclimb. Once up, pick any of the many identical 5.8 hand cracks that will take you to the summit.

For the sake of discreetness (and speed if you are seen) these cracks are to be free soloed only. Just bring shoes. Todd skinner recommended tennis shoes "for a quick get-away". If you can't climb the first pitch relatively easy without chalk, don't do it. Brown is the best color to wear assuming you don't want to be seen.

I'm told that while some cracks are perfect hands, others are fist and wider.
Fun resources for campus buildering include the buildering guides circulated by Extreme Angles, and the Mountain Gazette article published a few years back. Obviously, these are all historical documents, and nobody should actually climb these. ;) Jul 28, 2014

The range seems to be mostly from flared/wide hands to good hands for someone of average hand size. A shallow (3" deep) flared hands crack is a more fun and spicy approach to the first ledge if you want to skip the face climbing portion at the bottom. Apr 8, 2015
