View of the first 2+ pitches...

View of the first 2+ pitches of Beulah's Book from below its base. Two climbers (highlighted) are on Johnny Vegas (top climber is at the P1 belay). Beulah's Book starts up a short, wide crack (tricky for 5.6) and then moves onto a beautiful, steep face (horizontal cracks + 1 bolt for pro). P1 ends at the mouth of the "bombay chimney" - belay either on gear in the chimney or off of bolts just outside the chimney on right. P2 starts out via a flaring, 5.9- chimney (1 bolt and 1 4-inch cam for pro), moves up a 5.6 face/dihedral to reach the base of the 5.8+ layback crack (~25 feet long). Pitch 2 ends above the layback at a doubly bolted anchor. Pitch 3 starts off with a thinly protected 5.6 face climbing (up and right) and then eases back to low 5th class near the top of the route (note that P3 and P4 of Beulah's Book can be easily combined with 60m ropes).
