This may not look like much from the ground, but the movement is engaging and pumpy, and the line is well-bolted and surprisingly steep. Let It Go is the best route on the east face of Higher Education ridge, IMO. Seven reddish painted bolts lead to anchors rigged for lowering. At the fourth bolt, continue straight up – there is another bolt left that appears to be the start of an easier variation.


See Lycra Eater. This is the line of bolts left of the "cave."


Nine draws.
