BETA PHOTO: Shows Book of Wasps, Trafalmador, and Beautiful Da...

Description 

p.1 suprisingly fun, and the rock is pretty solid as compared to how it looks from afar, navigate a world of 5.8 rock to set up belay for The Book.

p.2 Climb over blocky ledges to get into the book. Look out for wasps. Climb the corner with thin crack to the top.

Location 

Obvious book to the left of Beautiful day. See beta photo. I like to rap in from the big Doug Fir that hangs over the canyon on the East wall of the South Side and scramble across the drainage to the toe of the north side

Protection 

normal rack, you might want to have a nut tool with you if you are leading because the thin crack in this rarely climbed corner can get filled with dirt. Clean it out and stuff a .4 or something like that

Its great you found a link up from the bottom of the canyon. I attempted to find a direct start straight down from the corner but never made it happen. I agree with the 10a rating
