Doug Cornick turns the roof.


Getting to the stance to clip the bolt right of the roof is the trick to this climb. Good pro and easier climbing above.


At the left edge of the south face of the Control Tower. Bolts lead to a roof that leads to a gear protected crack/corner above.


Bolts, standard light rack.

2 stars easy. Kind of reminds me of the Rupley routes. Interesting yet confusing crux followed by fun climbing with good easy-to-get gear.

I'd recommend changing the route type field to "trad,sport" to indicate it's a MIXED route. I quickly looked at the route type description which said "sport" and spaced out on the rest of the detail further down. Then I ended up above the roof with just a few smaller Aliens I had left over on my harness from a previous climb.

There was a bail biner on the last bolt so someone else had made the same mistake as well. It's amazing the imaginary bolts you'll convince yourself you're seeing once you think it's a sport route.

Strange, awkward moves needed to get under the roof. Pulling the roof is fun. Rock is very suspect, blew off baseball sized chunk.

The roof moves are only awkward if you do them wrong (which I also did on first try). But done correctly it's a nice crux.

Gosh, I think this is the climb I did with Catherine on the Control Tower. Fun climb!
