The arete just right of Open Book is an interesting mantle/arete problem to work on TR. Seems easy for the grade once you figure out the trick for the crux, which is about 10-15' up. It's a really cool move.

The upper part of Broadway is the most direct finish, but you can TR this from an anchor built for the climbs to either side as well.


The arete just right of Open Book.


TR, from an anchor for Broadway or maybe Open Book.
No pro for the crux, but it's low enough that it could reasonably be bouldered by someone halfway bold with a few pads & spotters.
