Description 

This is a fun climb that begginners could make it up. There are plenty of big holds that don't require fancy body positioning to use. Also some good hands free resting places to sort gear, take a breather or a picture.

Location 

The start is the same as the Library. Move right at the ledge and follow the large crack to the top.

Protection 

No fixed gear. Standard rack. Build your own anchor at the top or hike down. Gear is very hard to find on the first book leading to the ledge. I've heard you can use micro in the crack but I couldn't figure it out and anyway, I'm not sure what a 2kn nut is worth. I used a small alien cam on the outside (left) of the book midway up and wasn't thrilled with it. This was my 3rd trad lead so the experienced climber may find plenty of gear. Fortunately, after the first book you can put in as much gear as you want.
