Description 

The Tombstone is an obvious slab on the right of the trail just before reaching The Book. It is directly in front of the Fat City Crack alcove. The rock has a prominent, left-arching, splitter crack that joins an offwidth (Tombstone, 5.8) as well as a bolted route (Resurrection, 5.11c).

There are no bolted anchors on this formation, so plan on improvising a rappel.


Getting There 

Hike the standard approach to The Book and The Pages Wall and look for The Tombstone on the right just before reaching the base of The Book.
