This climb originally followed the corner thin crack but people came to Sesame Street and brought no cams or small nuts. The climb was "re-crafted" into "The Count Becomes Difficult" at 5.8+. The "Count" is essentially an eliminate problem; if you get in the corner crack it is easier for a while but not the route.

The Count is a good line for an aspiring 5.8 leader as it is well protected. Chain anchors and about 75 ft. FFA: Tom Beck.

Grover's Book is now seldom climbed and though the gear is a little technical, the crux is down low at the first 2 bolts of the Count.

This route you can easily rig from the top of the cliff with long slings for a top rope.
