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.

Outlander 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  CO : Lumpy Ridge : ... : The Pages Wall Area
Outlander is a fantastic, steep 2-pitch route at the top of the Book, with varied climbing. Start with any of the 3 to 4 pitch routes that lead up to the Cave area. Most people do Cheap Date and then the final pitch of Outlander, but P1 of Outlander is comparable in quality to Cheap Date.It is most expedient to belay on a ramp down and left from the Cave in a little alcove, with some blocks and loose flakes.P1 - climb up into the prominent left-trending arch (the significant dihedral left of t...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
