This excellent climb is on the relatively narrow wall to the right of the Open Book. Start with the initial overhang of the Open Book, then move up and right past a bolt, and into a crack system. One or two 5.9 lieback moves are followed by easy climbing, and then a 5.9 move just before the belay (the route joins Mechanic's Route here). When Mechanic's Route branches off and right onto face climbing, continue up the crack. Great finger jamming leads ten or twelve feet up to a crux exit move onto the face. Climb up to a crack above, and on to a belay. Exit to either the right (Mechanic's Route) or left (Open Book).
