This problem is on the EMS spire and ascends beautiful and gritty concrete. It is without a doubt one of the best problems available to looped out students anywhere on the UW-Milwaukee campus. Sit start is recommended. Begin on the southeast arete of the spire and traverse clockwise to a gnarly high foot/ full on mantle to the platform on the west side of the spire. Those who dare to go to the top of the spire get bonus V points, but it is strongly recommended against due to the structurally degraded concrete up there.


The EMS spire is located between the EMS and Physics building. Down climb to get off.

This is one of the most futuristic and visionary lines on the UW Milwaukee campus. A must-do for any local hardman.
