Description 

The Techulator is a worthy and sunny destination. There are many decent to good routes, enough to keep most anyone busy for a day or two. There may not be a single five star classic but there are many one- three star routes including Muffin Bandits (5.10b)face to crack, E.B. Bon Homme (5.9) a nice splitter, Alexander's Salamander (5.10d) finger crack and Tchalk is Cheap (5.10d).

Getting There 

Take the north Wonderland approach as though heading for Ellesmere Island and Gilligan's Island. Just after passing Ellesmere and Gilligan's Island on the trail cut due east around the northern base of Gilligan's. A group of formations are seen to the east including The Techulator, Pernicious Dome, El Dorado and the Skin Graft. The approach is ~2 miles and takes 45 minutes or so.

2/8/2010 -- Be prepared for loose, chossy, exfoliating rock. Bring extra bail webbing to back up anchors, both natural and fixed. Climbed 'The Spire' and 'Science Experiments You Can Eat' -- nice climbs if you can hang on while the rock crumbles around you. Note: The 2 bolts on Science Experiments are buttonheads, 1st one doesn't look so good.
