Start up a crack left of big ugly open book a few hundred feet past the Rogers Escape Hatch area. Climb up the steep crack and face to a belay ledge. An easier pitch leads to the top. Watch out for loose rock. A decent pitch if you are down here, but not worth the walk by itself.

3 out of 5 stars Dirty and awful

There were a few fun moves, but this climb was so dirty. Pine needles, leaves, lichen, little trees, dirt piles. I was worried about my feet slipping of the huge jugs due to all of the debris. This could be fun if it were cleaned up and climbed more frequently. Reminded me of a really easy P1 of Erect Direction or Double Crack.
