Crux of the route is right after the 6th bolt. A fun and technical crux move made less fun by the quality of the rock.

The quality of rock on the east side of Tan Man is markedly poorer than of that on the west side, so be aware while climbing and treat every hand/foot as suspect.


East side of Tan Man Tower just right of Homeboy, climb about 15 feet up to first bolt.


9 bolts to two-bolt anchor. Shared last bolt and anchor with Homeboy.
