Rock Climbing Photos : Bouldering : Student Center South By The Column

Student Center South By The Column

Student Center South By The Column

Here's about the only other one I have - Doug Drewes, circa '76, on "[i]Student Center South - By The Column[/i]". As the name implies the problem goes up the column and then out the roof pods to where Doug is about to attempt the very careful transition to a full hang before firing the top. The first transition from the column top into to the knee jams in the roof pods is one crux, moving across the pods to get established on that edge is the second, and then negotiating that "[i]careful transition[/i]" to a full hang while maintaining full control of how your feet lower out is the third crux - manage that one badly such that your feet just cut/swing and you get ripped off the edge and suffer a desperate face-planting wrist-breaker onto the concrete below. We did it both on this lower South portico and on the 20 foot or so East portico.
