Description:

This is a classic on the mountain. Climb easier solid rock for about 30 feet to the bottom of the open book. This is described as a crack with a left facing corner. There is a bolted anchor at the top. "The Nose" route is much more difficult and immediately to the right.

4 out of 5 stars Good practice rock for beginners

Instructed beginning climbers on this route with top rope.
Fun easy climb for people starting out. The route has at a variation that makes it slightly more difficult. I probably lead it w/o pro to set up the anchors.
