Description 

The Pages Wall area is a sub-section of the Book, and includes routes on the center of the Book, between the Isis Buttress and the J-Crack Slab Areas. The far right side of the Pages Wall Area is marked by a large left facing dihedral that features such climbs as El Camino Real (5.12c) and Corner Pump Station (5.11c). The left side of the Pages Wall Area is marked by a deep cleft that separates it from the Isis Buttress. This section of the Book is packed with quality, including such Lumpy classics as Howling at the Wind (5.11b), Perelandra (5.11a), Fat City (5.10c) and Osiris (5.7). The Exit Wall (upper section of the center Book) is also included in this area, that features amazing pitches like Outlander (5.10c) and Cheap Date (5.10b).

Getting There 

Hike as you would to the Book. The trail to the left will deposit you right at the base of the Pages Wall Area. This area is the center of the Book, to the left of the large, left-facing dihedral which hangs above broken rock below. The center of the Pages Wall Area can be identified by George's Tree (5.8), where a ambitious, little tree grows from a large crack that runs up the middle of the slab.

That Hideous Strength climbs one of the more prominent pitches on the Book—it’s curious that it was left alone for all these years.Pitch 1 (110 feet, 5.10a): Climb the first pitch of Perelandra, but belay about 6 feet right of the normal stance on some good footholds in the dihedral that defines the right side of the Fat City alcove. This belay can also be reached by climbing the first pitch of Howling at the Wind (5.9). Upon reaching the wedged block ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
