4 out of 5 stars The Open Book

A fun climb for sure. Pretty easy down low with a nice rest spot higher up. The "open book" section up top is a nice challenge with some fun moves. It took me a few tries to get it figured out but once you find the holds its not bad.

4 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise

It was a really enjoyable climb--unique and satisfying. The rock is a bit polished, but less so than the other climbs around it. Mostly easy 5.7 climbing with huge pockets, under-clings, and side-pulls. The crux is the only difficult move, but even taking that in to account I'd rate the climb at a 5.9- if you go in to it with even a little knowledge.

4 out of 5 stars Exciting Lead

Doesn't get led much, but you don't get many exciting leads like this on the middle of town. Sling the horn down low, throw a cam in half way, a few small cams under the roof and drop a brown tricam in the finger pocket (questionable). Feels quite a bit different pulling the last moves with your feet above gear.
