Egghead starts by scampering up the third class gully that leads to the ledge system from which The Professor and Tuition Hike start, but continues up a line of bolts directly above the gully. At the fourth bolt trend right past a few more bolts to the chain anchors for The Professor. Although really just a boulder problem followed by much easier climbing, I think you’ll find it worthwhile for a quick hit 11+/12-.


Set up below the obvious, broken gully that leads to The Professor/Tuition Hike's ledge system. See phototopo on main page.


Six draws, and two more for the chains. Well protected, but a pain to clean on rappel or when lowering—might want to have your second clean it on TR.
