Description

This climb offers some of the best jams and stems in the gorge. When you see it you will know why and you will want to climb it.

From the rock ramp climb your way up to a roof and bulge. Continue up the incredible corner to a tree covered ledge, building a belay mid way through the corner.

Location

The Open Book is located in the Ampitheater. Approach via the main descent gully, route will be on your right side as you are descending. If you reach the prow...go back. Look for a large wet chimney and water streaks, route is just to the right. Rack up and stash packs before hiking into the gully.

Protection

Standard NC rack. There are a couple of pins/bolts through the crux roof moves but that is about it.
