Description 

This route is an interesting challenge for those doing some one pitch cragging in the Book area. It would deserve two stars, if the rock quality was better.

The lower face is protected by two bolts. The first 5.11 crux is passing the first bolt near a good side pull. Easier climbing continues up through a finger crack, which is protected by med-lg nuts. The second committing crux comes as the crack pitches off and the feet disappear. Place a small nut and gun it to the anchors.

Make sure you backup your final small nut with a 0.75 Camalot about 3 feet below. I had two pieces pull when I whipped off the crux.

Location 

This route is located on the small buttress to the right of the Bookmark Pinnacle. You probably passed it a number of times when walking off the Bookmark.

Protection 

2 bolts on lower face, 1 set of nuts (sm-lg), and a 0.75/1 Camalot.
