This is really a variation to Crocodile Tears. Start on that route, then once in the dihedral above the ledge, traverse right onto the face (past a bolt) to enter the "open book" feature. Continue up that with some very interesting face climbing to gain the slab above. A couple tricky slab moves take you to the roof, where some bold moves will take you over the lip, onto the juggy face above. Follow Crocodile Tears for the last 20 feet or so to its anchors.

Originally, the "open book" feature (which is the heart of this route) was part of "Kevin's Mega Project". That route was re-routed into a more direct line to create The Legacy, but that left this really cool open book feature un-accessible. Therefore, we decided to add this variation to open up some really cool climbing.

There are a couple possible ways to start the route, but all would require placing some gear. We hope you like it!


It is on the Brown Wall right of Crocodile Tears and left of The Legacy. It begins on Crocodile Tears, then breaks right onto the face following bolts, only to rejoin Crocodile Tears for the finish over the roof.


Mostly bolts, but bring a few pieces of gear for the start and finish on Crocodile Tears (up to 3/4" cams). I placed one finger-sized cam at the top. A 70m rope is required to lower off.
