An OK climb, but less traveled at least- no lines here. The climb has some variety and also has pretty good gear opportunity, but is not a classic splitter or corner that the gorge is so well known for.
Climb the crack system to a ledge with small trees and gear (belay optional) the continue on a wide crack to the top, or go left and climb a harder crack (5.9) to finish. The alternate finish was by J. Bronaugh & T. Freezel, '89.


From the approach, arriving below the Cruisemaster dihedral, go left out around a blunt corner and come into a left-facing Open-Book corner with some cracks a meter or so apart.


Rack to a #4 camalot and enough slings to run the pitches together.

I did the first pitch as a warm-up while I was waiting to get on Autumn. It was not an enjoyable climb. My follower agreed. Apr 30, 2014
There are bolted anchors here, but if you plan to TR this bring some rope to extend them, they are set back about 10 feet from the end of the climb. Oct 19, 2015

First pitch of this is great, if sandy, Second pitch is worthless, save your time and effort and just rap down from the nicely bolted P1 belay. Nov 7, 2016

One of the worst routes I've ever climbed. Without the tree it's probably harder than 5.7. I used the tree. May 8, 2017

Would be a much better climb if it wasn't covered in dirt for the entire first pitch. Great view from top of first pitch and a surprise friend in the rock right below the roof Jun 7, 2017
