1. Climb up to the left edge of the large overhang that is immediately right of the start of Main Line. Move around its left edge, climb into the left-facing corner above, exit right and belay at the bolts. 5.8, 100 feet.

2. Approximately 10-15 feet left of the Main Line roof (which is directly above the bolts) there is a short, right-facing corner. Exit left from this (crux), then climb the large overhangs. 5.9, 60 feet.


Immediately right of Main Line you will see a large ceiling about 40 feet up. The start of Ground Control is directly below the right end of this ceiling at a short, right-facing corner.


Standard 'Gunks rack. Double ropes are nice for the first pitch, but not essential.
