An OK climb, but less traveled at least- no lines here. The climb has some variety and also has pretty good gear opportunity, but is not a classic splitter or corner that the gorge is so well known for.
Climb the crack system to a ledge with small trees and gear (belay optional) the continue on a wide crack to the top, or go left and climb a harder crack (5.9) to finish. The alternate finish was by J. Bronaugh & T. Freezel, '89.


From the approach, arriving below the Cruisemaster dihedral, go left out around a blunt corner and come into a left-facing Open-Book corner with some cracks a meter or so apart.


Rack to a #4 camalot and enough slings to run the pitches together.
