Straight up the open book, past the obvious dead tree stump. Grabbing the dead tree stump is on (though it's interesting to skirt around its left side without touching it). Continue up to the top of the open book / dihedral. Use a small live tree to negotiate the left end of the roof. (Variation: Pull the roof, strenuous on positive holds: 5.8+). Finish with 20-25 feet less steep to the top.
warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2014. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
About 25 feet up in the open book is a nine-inch-wide tree stump sticking out three feet.
Top Rope: Straightforward to set up as a top-rope with a static line not more than 50 feet.
