The right and left corner of this structure are exactly the same..but the small sculpture of the person balancing makes the left corner more inspiring.

vertical concrete "cracks" go the top of this structure with irregularly spaced horizontal "cracks" give you a little bit of a rest. As with everything on the steam tower...topping out is what you want to do- beware this urge.....it is easy to get over the head of any possibility of spotters stopping you from breaking your ankle.


The steam tower south of the library.


your wits, some sticky rubber on a pair of shoes that you can ride your bicycle with.

landing is super, grassy....almost friendly unless you get too high.

attracting attention to yourself here could easily bring campus police to your "aid".
