I did an extension of this climb, it is not called Book 'em Dano but goes where everyone seems to think Book 'em Dano goes, straight up.
I don't quite understand where the sport/trad comes from?? A climb with bolts now = a sport climb? Since when?
This was a ground up climb, drilled on the lead.
I did this climb with the idea of making it a one pitch climb, it is around 60 meters.
I named the climb Open Your Eyes in 1988, Don Reid said he would not publish a name for it but yet named it for me. Well OK Mr.Guidebook!!

Did you name your extension? I think the confusion comes from the supertopo guide.
The Sport/Trad thing comes from an unclear definition of those words. Is the route Sport (bolts for protection) or Trad (Ground up and quite runout?) I think a bit of both applies.
Perhaps you could correct this image by adding in your line in contrast to Book 'em Dano.

|it seems you can go left or right at the second bolt (the crux). left may well be 11b (I didn't go that way but it looked very possible) - the right variation I would put at 10bish which makes for a great link up with bookem dano and keeps the rating to 10d for the both.|
