The x is for a potential big fall on top rope. I have used static rope sometimes on this due to the slack put in the rope leads to a big swing if a fall is in the wrong place. This climb is about 20 feet right of the book to an obvious overhang. Climb up and back into the overhang(Danger area). The start out the overhang, hint not hand over hand but reach out and up over your head into the crack for a bicep like pull up position. Follow this around the corner and then follow the consistently pleasant cracks to the top.

4 out of 5 stars The Overhang -- Also refered to as Rebirth

A really fun yet heady climb just at the start. The X is definitely for being in the cave cuz if you fall you have a big swing into some trees. When in it there is a pretty sweet crack you can climb out with. After that the rest is pretty sweet. Overall its a really fun route to do.
