Description:

This route ascends the very obvious huge open book about 30m right of the pool. Start where some tree roots come down the face to ground level. 1. 50m, 19 Climb tree roots until able to rail left to a tree. Up to another rail, then left again to the base of a shallow open book/groove. Climb the face to the left of the book to a ledge. One can stance here but it makes sense to carry on up the main open book above and take a hanging stance about 5m below some massive blocks in the right wall. 2. 30m, 22 Continue up the corner, over the massive blocks. Climb carefully up the flake on the left wall to beneath the roofs. Power through and then traverse left to pull around the last roof. Climb the corner above until you run out of gear or rope. 3. 30m, 18 Continue up the corner to the top. FA: Jerry Linke, Romey Druschke, Eckhart Druschke, 1979/04/14.
