Description 

This formation is the smaller tower located to the left (west) of the drip buttress and right of double-wide buttress. It's face stands south facing and about 450 feet tall, and the ridge can be seen extending uphill to the north to the top of the ridgeline. The ridge is marked by numerous towering south faces, and a large west face along the whole formation. The south face has a large roof at about 250 feet, with numerous incipient seams going up the face.

Getting There 

Approach via the blodgett trail, and once you are about parallel with the drip, cut downhill off trail and cross the creek. Hike up the scree and talus slopes toward the drip and cut left along weaknesses until you are directly below the Cornlier south face. Follow along the west side of the ridge to gain access to most established routes.

first pitch of fourplay

Fourplay 5.10a/b 6a+ 19 VI+ 19 E2 5b  MT : Blodgett Canyon : ... : Cornler Towers
This route goes up the west side of the tower formation, following three different crack systems, and very comfortable belay ledges. The top of the route is a tower summit, and is only about the size of a car. The breakdown of the pitches is:pitch 1: find the cairn at the west side of the tower's base and find the 2 prominent cracks that head up the west face. The climb takes the left of these cracks, going through a small big hands section to a face where the crack disapears for a few feet. Onc...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
