Starts on the face of the outermost "book." Several cracks split this face, but the most obvious line allows you to start at the very bottom of the book, climb up ~30-40 feet until the crack widens and a small ramp appears across the face to the left. Traverse this way on face moves to gain access to another crack which leads to the top. Seriously good sustained 5.8 most of the way.


The only route on the Books which does not start off the slopey platform. You can downclimb from the platform and try the short hike down and around through the manzanita to gain the base. An alternative is to climb either of the two routes to its right, climb up and over the boulders on the top-out, and build an anchor on the other side above 5.8 Hand Crack from which to rap.


Gear to 4", chain anchors.
