This is not Book 'em Dano.
Book 'em Dano goes out the diagonal line of knobs out to the right and them up to the top of the cliff, 5.10b.
This climb is an extension of G-Man and is meant to be climbed in one pitch, 55 meters.

|I'm 6' and I had to jump about 6 inches to get the horizontal. I think you'd have to be really tall (6'5"?) to avoid the jump, which is pretty scary onsight!|

|I've TR this before doing the jump without a problem. Tried leading it recently and found myself standing on the huge knob with the bolt at my ankle level. I'm 5'8" and needed only another 3 inches to reach the horizontal. With multiple large knobs to land on in case of flailure I found myself lacking in the sac department and bailed. This climb would have been a lot more enjoyable if that bolt was moved a few feet higher or better yet with another bolt just below the horizontal. It's basically a no-hands stance there, so not placing a bolt on the FA was a contrivance.|

|Yeah the FA should have done one more mantle before pulling out the drill. Clipping a bolt to do a 5.6 mantle and then facing an ankle busting runout for the 5.10+ all-points-off dyno is just strange.|
