Overview
FA: John Tainio, 7/31/85.

This is a brilliant line up a cool formation. Just left of the Ataxia Tower is a deep alcove/recess. The Man Eater begins on the front of the buttress on the left side of this alcove in a straight-in splitter and flake system. This route has been free climbed up to the bolt ladder leading up the last 25-foot summit pillar. The first pitch was originally aided and has a section of flakes that takes some gumption to free climb on past marginal pro. Nevertheless this is a cool route. The summit tower is hard to make out from right below the route, but once you see it you will want to summit it. The cracks of Man Eater are hard to see unless you get the proper angle. A short cheater stick or bat hook is necessary to climb the last pitch.

Rack: see topo.

Descent: several raps lead into the alcove located to the right of the route. The rap anchors on this one are due for replacement.
