Very nice lieback diehedral climbing with good pro.


This is the obvious, south-facing open book on the south side of Saddle Rocks, uphill of the walkoff/approach to "Boom Boom Room." and below and to the left of "Flakes Can Collapse." Descent is to the west.

FA unknown but we did this 12/95 and found an old rusted fixed pin near top which we cleaned.
