Description

Traverse out onto the main corner after passing below the start of Open Book.
Pitch 1: Belay and climb the first easy pitch for 50m or so. There is a nice airy belay ledge.
Pitch 2: Wander up the expansive slab to a ledge under a headwall.
Pitch 3: Strike up the left slanting diehdral at the left edge of the ledge. Stay out on the lower face and utilize great big jugs. Head left for the arete and enjoy the phenominal exposure. Belay on the next big ledge.
Pitch 4: Traverse some goofy stuff across a gap and then head up into the vegetation to a nice ledge where it is obvious people have camped. Belay, and then scramble up the chimney to the top of the wall.

Great route for the grade with great position.

Protection

No fixed anchors. Standard Table Rock rack. Walk down the Amphitheatre to get to the base and climb back out to the approach trail.
