Description:

Look for the dihedral below the fourth set of bolts and you will find the Book. Easily described as the route that looks like the cliff is opening up like "the pages of the book". The route is towards the right side of the cliff.

3 out of 5 stars One move wonder

Easy route up to the last move - TR this one because there's water running down the route and no good pro placements.

2 out of 5 stars Great top.

Easy climb up to the top, hard to set up a top rope in perfect position for climbing out on this one but it is worth the time.

3 out of 5 stars Fun lead with a good friend.

I was convinced to lead this climb by a good friend of mine and I will never forget the climb. The climb became more about the company than the climbing.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

A great climb! It's 5.6 all the way to the "hotel" then it jumps into 5.9-5.10 territory real quick.
It took me a few tries the week before to work up the finger strength/finess to make it up the first time.
