Shannon Chasteen pulling the bulge on The Controve...
Start up some overhanging rock then move out right to the arete. The route finishes at a two bolt anchor left of the arete.
The trail to the North Forty comes close to the cliff at an overhanging section which holds several 5.11 to 5.12 lines (Big Top etc.). The Controversy is right of these climbs and a little uphill, past a dihedral, and starts to the left of an arete.
Seven bolts and a two bolt anchor.
View looking out from the top of The Controversy.

Onsight 2005-12-26. Pretty solid 5.9 over the bulge. Then cruiser yet airy and fun. 5.8- is a bit of a sandbag.
