Named after the wall's token line, the Book of Condolences area is a subset area of routes in the middle of this accordion style cliff. This section has the most concentration of lines and also the most popular routes. All exposure laws apply, so come early in the summer to beat the heat or plan on the fall for optimal temperatures.

Getting There

Follow the walls standard approach only continue past the initial set of talus and walk another 200 +/- feet until a swatch of large trees block your view. Follow a faint path up a trail of large blocks.

What a great name for the cliff. The namesake route is a quality experience if it is dry. I found the 11's to be good, but not the greatest warm ups for the harder routes. If you want an efficient secondary warmup for the 13's, do Xcess. It's only hard on the bottom. Also beware that the route named Silencer, and listed as 12d in the Ruckman guide, has a general consensus of being harder than the 13a's at the cliff. Mar 6, 2016
