The Open Book is that striking shaft of white light shooting up the center of the formation...clear as a bell, and first climbed in 1947 using wooden pitons for aid! (Bongs were not invented yet, and cams did not hit the market for another 30+ years. Those 2x4 "pins" were used on aid, and left in place for a few subsequent ascents...I wonder where they are now?
