The Book of Eli 

Climb the first 15 feet of The Weismuller Route, a mega classic though obscure 5.10 crack climb. When you grab a 2 foot tall monolith spike on that route move right using a side pull and sweet incut layback fingercrack.

Decipher a sweet and spicy boulder problem using side pulls and a sloper on the blunt arete. Or move left to an easier slab. From here, climb the gorgeous pink granite face above staying just left of the arete and sometimes using the arete.

When you gain the awesome triangular ledge step left into some nice cracks that lead to another ledge and a good optional belay. Finish up the moderate and gorgeous granite of The Weismuller Route.

Careful of loose rock in the upper crack. It's a work in progress.
