Description

A laser cut open book that is somewhat reminiscent of the stemming section on The Winter in the Gunks. Easier than The Winter, but the corner climbing is longer; has the same good but smallish gear. Would get 4 stars if longer and did not end semi-prematurely. Nevertheless, high quality the entire way. Done ground up on the FA w/ some aid (Mark Bealor, Ross Many, Bronson Liguori).

Climb the book with stemming, edging, and continuous difficulty. The climb ends at a fixed anchor clipped from a bucket. The corner is naturally clean to the anchor, but above it becomes abruptly dirty and more difficult. Could certainly be extended with cleaning and a better climber.

Location

Locate Andrew,  the obvious and beautiful open book that arches up and left and is speckled with orange lichen. Walk around the corner from Andrew, 50', and find the climb tucked back in a nook. An especially good climb when it's sunny as it faces to the E and is sheltered from the sun by a big beech tree at it's base.

Protection
