Climb straight up, to the left side of the roof. The top is the corner. The crux is the roof moves. It is a fun little route for warm up, and for my height, I found a neat move possible. Palm straight up into the roof (pushing my body down), while putting my weight on my left foot, thus forming a "Pillar" hold. Then I am free to grab the left side jug easily.


On top of middle tower, go towards the back, facing the lake, and the climb is on the wall to your right, just past the boulder stack. This route is straight down on the right side of the roof consisting of parallel cracks.


Use the large boulder structure to setup the top rope. You will see a nice groove to put the runners. I suggest putting the runners right next to the small tree to keep them from extending if the baby bush/tree gives way.
