As you hike up Big Wash, Entrance Exam is the first boulder you come to. As a result, this boulder is frequently targeted by beer-bottle hurlers. Check the route for broken glass before throwing your hand blindly onto any hold. Entrance Exam has two main problems: Entrance Exam and Finals Week.

Getting There 

From the parking lot at Big Wash, hike ~100 yards up the trail. The trail passes just to the right of this boulder.

Has anyone climbed the west-facing prow on here? I worked the problem a while back and realized it's possible but above my ability. Just curious, as the movement seemed liked it would be pretty cool.
