The following photos are from a guidebook written by the prolific coastal mountaineer Dick Culbert in 1968. Only one copy was ever made, a Duotang binder consisting of typewritten pages and glued in black and white photos. Over half the photos have fallen out over the years. These are the last remaining photos.

This is the second of two guidebooks made by Mr. Culbert. In 1963 he made his first buildering guidebook, similar to the second one. It contained many other route descriptions and photos. Sadly this book went missing from the VOC archives sometime in 1998 before I had a chance to scan it.


Chemistry ascent via drainpipes. Presently, over half of the drain pipes on campus have been ripped off from said activity. 


Buchanan public art type thing. It’s terrible, don’t bother.



Friedman arete. Gnar gnar with a capitol GNAR.


St. Andrews Chapel – Demolished

travSt. Andrews Wall – Demolished


War Memorial Gym Pillar. A nice warmup


Women’s Gym – demolished. Climbing to second level change rooms yields “other benefits.”


Hebb Theatre. (a) Layback (b) Weird Stem. Both routes highly recommended.
