Description 

Climb halfway up the first pitch of Open Book to a obvious right facing arch 10a, which curves up and right. From here move up and right onto the face which share the belay for ZigZag and Mechanic's Route. At the start of the second pitch mantle an overhanging block on the left to a thin corner 10d, which leads to face climbing past 3 bolts up to the last belay of Open Book.


Location 

Between Open Book and ZigZag


Protection 

Lots of thin to four inch.

Easier and not as long as The Souvenir which was put up by the same person at the same time. Well protected. I never found the RP placement, instead using small cams.

Got on the bolted section while doing Zig-Zag, ultra thin crimps. From the Mechanics Route belay there's an obvious horn on the left that leads to the bolts.
