Well protected, go for it.


A (sparsely) bolted roped climbing route right on campus. Sustained 5.8 chimney passes one bolt at 25', an old hangerless bolt at 50', then nothing to the top. There used to be another bolt at about 75' but this has supposedly been removed & the hole filled. Since this route is somewhat secluded and ideal for night-time ascents, it has historically been climbed at night, and often after an evening on Mill Ave. Also this route is very R/X rated and should be taken seriously.

Of course I would never do this. Route entered for historical purposes only.


Tucked back in a corner on east side of Bateman Physical Sciences Center.


All you get is 1 bolt & 1 hangerless bolt in 100'. Rap off piping on the roof.

Piece of advice: if you're trying to make it seem like you're only posting this information for "historical purposes," you need to avoid incriminating yourself with lines such as "This route is somewhat secluded and ideal for night-time ascents, just be stealthy."

Have a look at the Navajolands area.

Hey Braxton I disagree, but in the spirit of I altered the wording a bit. Hopefully you will find the current verbiage more palatable.
