Trad -- good pro at the bottom, but hard to place due to weird crack. Chossy up top.

Description:

Climb an open book with a peculiar corner crack. The start feels harder than 5.5. Top half, after the open book is easier.

3 out of 5 stars Grunge Route Beta

The route is located in the Central Zone. Descend Falling Tom gully and walk north. The route is marked by a yellow '16b.' The route starts at a ledge. This ledge is approximately a meter above the trail proper. The route follows the obvious book fold with a crack that runs continuously up the fold. The crack will end at a prominent bulge. To the left is a ledge with a large tree. This is your exit.

3 out of 5 stars Pretty good... make sure to stop early...

As with all these routes, the topo isn't exactly verbose, so wasn't clear how it ended. First time, I reached the obvious ledge and then headed right and up a hard face past an old and then a new pin. This was a jump of couple of grades, and I believe it is another, unknown route. I.e. stopping al the obvious left ledge makes for a nice fun climb, with nice motion down low.
