DescriptionAnother quality line on Water Wall, Open Books starts up 3 open book features, then turns a roof at the top.
Start in the first open book, step right on a ledge, head up the 2nd open book (still easy), step right and enter the 3rd open book. A technical crux guards the exit stepping left out of this last corner, which is followed by easy climbing to the headwall. Clip a piton with a big reach (can be backed up with gear), and turn the tricky steep section- the 2nd crux of the route- to the big ledge and the anchor.
LocationMiddle to right side of Water Wall. Just left of Gothic Pillar, look for 3 open book/wide groove features, each one to the right of the one below it.
