Description 

From where Arch Crack arcs to to the left, go straight up a discontinuous series of flakes and cracks. The crux is near the bottom.


Location 

See above. There is also a series of grooves to the left that Leo Paik climbed.
We descended fairly close to the Bookend. Quite involved with some downclimbing.


Protection 

TR'ed it from the top, so can't say much about gear, except prob. some 30 foot runouts on 5.5 terrain. Pro to 2" should work.

Leo Paik gets the credit for the vision(!) for the route.
It is very possible it has been done before, just not in the guidebooks.
