Description:

This is the cool arching right-facing dihedral about 30' to the right of The Open Book. Another aesthetic aid line freed by Rick Accomazzo, John Long, and Tobin Sorenson way back in 1975.

Intense! Interesting delayed onset muscle soreness 1-2 days after ;-) Small TCU placement prior to pin at the roof (hard to see when you are above it)

Tenuous and delicate. Sustained the whole way!

Burly route. Don't exit the roof too soon, or you're looking at a 30-foot runout into a piton

awesome climbing up a spectacular feature. heady when you leave the arch and traverse right. very little gear required being that there are many fixed pins on the first 2 pitches. take some wires, small cams and many draws. can rap with 1 rope after 2nd pitch straight down to another 2-bolt anchor in middle of seemingly blank face. This avoids 5.5 scrambling off as well as walk-off.

Really much bigger and spectacular that it looks from the ground.
The stemming starts real tricky, then develops well.
The move going beyon the top of the arch is runout.
I can't wait to get back onto this route and red-point it.
