Description 

On the far left side of the west side of Billboard is this nice looking brown book. Although I have seen very few climbers on it, we thought the climbing was interesting. Climb the corner to where it hooks up with the top of We Dive and continue to top of formation.


Protection 

Small to medium nuts, few cams. Bolted anchor on top.

CONDITION REPORT 

The rock is getting a little slick, perhaps because of the cold when we climbed.

Nice little lead with protection a little difficult to arrange down low, but it's all there for the patient leader. I exited through the wide crack above which seemed an exciting way to finish the route.
