The best way to do the climbs at the five open books is to hike over from camp 4 in the morning with what just you need for the day then do on of the lower climbs and link up with Saliginella, a burly but great route and the walk off is down the falls trail and ends at your cooler of beer in camp 4.
The normal parking area for this climb, The Lower Yosemite Falls parking, is closed permanently. This means that to climb an routes and Five Open Books or Sunnyside Bench you need to park either at the Yosemite Lodge or Camp 4.

*What is "Route Beta"?
It's climber slang for information or tips on a route as in, "what's
the beta on that route?" As a service to fellow climbers we ask SuperTopo
guidebook users to post tips and updates to this website if they have relevant
information to share after a climb.
