Begin just to the left of the open book, go up about 6' and move into open book. Ascend to overhang and work yourself out a little onto right face (the crux - at this point you achieve serendipity). Ascend again between overhang and face to a point above the overhang. The climb now becomes a friction pitch with a few cracks here and there, then rock rolls over toward the anchors (65' elev. change, climb distance longer).


Serendipity starts out about 30' left of Digital Dilemma in an open book under a rounded overhang. It ends at the Digital Dilemma chains. Rap down from chains.


Bring small and medium cams. Good settings in crack at back of open book and under overhang. Enough settings on cracks in friction pitch. Bring long sling to set rope 6' to 8' from anchor if you intend to rap down and belay second from bottom to lessen rope drag.
