Description 

The open book left of the upper section of Blow Hole is an obvious line but lacks an obvious start.

Begin about 10' left of Blow Hole in seams. Make a long reach from a lieback/stem (crux) to get to some edges that let you move left to join the start of the featured upper dihedral. You can place a #3 or #4 cam before committing to the crux moves. The open book above is fun sustained stemming in the 5.10- range to the top.

Location 

Climb starts 10' left of Blow Hole, and ends in the open book left of Blow Hole.

Protection 

1 set nuts, 1 set cams up to a 3" cam.
Build an anchor off your gear at the top of the climb. Like many at the Playground, this one ends at the ledge 15' below the top, so tieing off dying trees is not a good choice. It may be ok to climb this route from an anchor for the next climb on either side.
