Description

Start just left of Open Book. Step up and traverse left to the main triple overhang crack. A direct start in the thin crack is harder and discouraged because it is very close to the 'snake' petroglyph. Turn the first overhang, which is pretty easy, to a good rest stance. The second overhang- an A shaped slot- is harder and usually involves making an insecure mantle or big reach to a wide crack to the left, both with poor feet. Overhang #3 is just before the topout. It's not as hard as the 2nd one, with exit jugs, but be sure to rest before starting it, to keep from being too pumped at the finishing mantle.

Location

This climb is the next crack left of Open Book (the obvious dihedral) on the north side.

Protection

1 set cams to 4", wired nuts. A cordelette or long piece of webbing is useful for the anchor.
