There are two ways to do this route, once past the huge horizontal offwidth: left open book goes 5.7, right open book goes 5.8.
Climb left side (left-facing corner) of cut-out area straight up to huge horizontal, then take your pick of open books -- left side, or right side.
Adequate. Can sling large boulder for anchor, and put in additional pieces under it. The only trees in the vicinity are Pitch Pines.
Nice cracks in the lower part of the route.

Tried twice but got to the bottom of the crux and couldn't figure out a sequence to get into either 'book'. Next time perhaps.
Fun and stiff 5.7 climbing, with some layback moves, up to the ceiling.

Great Climb, found it easier to go left at the finish. Better gear and better hand holds to top out. Going right much more sloping holds till a really big "thank goodness" hold above the slopers. But definitely a 3 star climb from bottom to top. May be one of the best 5.7 climbs in the area.

Nice Route. Good Pro all the way.
