This single-pitch route is on the far eastern edge of The Book, just right of The Campground route. Starting just behind a low, flat boulder climb an easy corner to an old pin under the obvious roof. Back up the pin and make some bazaar, hard moves out the roof to a stance on a slab. Clip the bolt out right (recently updated) and pull out onto the slab on the right. Climb up the right-angling corner to where you can pull up and over the roof into the bushy fistcrack. Follow this to the anchor. There is good sized fall potential while pulling both rooves.


Bring a light rack up to #4 Friend to supplement one pin and one bolt on the pitch. There is a slung horn anchor at the top.

Easier for the tall person, have to be very creative if you're shorter. Little funky but it isn't a no star stink bomb. Pulling the last roof into the flare provides some excitement as a #3 Camalot looks like it may or may not hold.
