  • Description 

    Climb (or aid) through the Open Book first pitch until you can bail right on the ledge. Might be good to belay on Open Book and then move the belay. Fire up the obvious crack to a bolt-protected move up high. Clip a pin, compose yourself for the lichen-mantle at the top, and bask in the glory that is Linville Gorge climbing.
