Nice, blocky wall with a wide horizontal crack. One bolted sport climb on the far left but some other trad possibilities a little farther right on the cliff.

Getting There 

From the base of Sunset, continue south and slightly downhill toward the South Wall cliffline. Going steeply downhill on the steps takes you to Buzzard Cave Wall. Staying along the cliffline and heading slightly uphill takes you to Open Book and Mr. Clean.
