Comments: 11b sounds fair for the direct finish (to the first pitch)... I didn't realize the rout went right and climbed straight up on accident... tricky and balancy, and gets very thin! Worth a go. Definitely a tad easier than the crux on Electric shower.

To keep it 5.9, follow the contour of the roof to the in-cut gully, then move back left (you turn left at or just before the electric shower anchor).

Comments: Not the most experienced or confident offwidth climber, so I took a #4, #5, and #6 (Camalots), the #4 I placed instead of clipping the old pin, shuffled up a bit, placed the #6, then 3 feet higher placed the #5 in the back of the crack, and back cleaned the #6 (thinking I might need it again), I placed it another few feet above the 5 just because....
This sewed up the offwidth. If I were to go back, I would just take the #4 and the #5, or the... more >>

Comments: To get around to the rappel station, follow the gully off the north side of the summit and down-climb about 50 feet, then traverse left. You will follow some mellow 5th class ledges loosing some elevation and traversing west. There is a slot that you will climb what will feel like a roof, through a slot.

Keep heading west while descending over the grass ledge and around the next bulge. Continue around this curve 50 or so feet further, continuing to loose elevation. Right before this turns i... more >>

Comments: Two pitches, stopping on the ledge above the 'Signs of Life' anchors, makes for a great belay ledge to hang out on; in addition, lots of space to build an anchor in the crack before the 'crux'. It provided two cruising, trad pitches with the crux, just off that ledge moving left into the massive dihedral above. The dihedral can be climbed straight up at a very easy 5.5 and protects with a few #1 Aliens (or change directions and climb the last pitch of 'Zenotropia' ,10/c (the fac... more >>

Comments: Can be done on gear relatively safely. I clipped two bolts, the first and the last, and could have probably done without either.

Comments: Did the original pitch 1 today, misinterpreted the route & ended up trying to climb that rotten flake at the traverse to the pin. Pulled a piece off and almost yarded on the precariously placed gear below me. Took a minute to get moving to the left. I'll never make that mistake again.

Comments: Slotted a nut in the the crack just below the p4-5 belay (old refrigerator block), my second couldn't get it out. New fixed gear?

Comments: RiggerMortis, +1. My second was tired and didnt want to climb this. I should have built an anchor, rapped, and reclimbed it to retrieve gear. The bolts and rap anchor are just too far away and put too much tension on the rope to pull it.

Comments: I shoved an arm and a foot in that crack and shimmeyed right up it. It takes all larger gear. A number 2 went in the bottom, and it only gets larger!

Comments: To follow the flake all the way up maybee makes this a 5.9. It does get gritty and sandy. There are two serts of anchors, one old school in front of you and a newer set behind you. There is relatively new webbing on the left bolt, but with three sections of webbing on it and two skeptical ones (bird urine soaked) on the other side, it made me wish I had more webbing on hand and a knife, to replace and rebuild. Worth the climb to the top, however, and nice to avoid that crappy traverse.

Comments: Interesting enough warm-up, not worth going out of your way for, but if you're like me and enjoy hauling around the extra weight in gear anyway, it's worth a climb. Plus my second was just learning trad, so it was fun to sew it up and have him pull all the gear out and up the wall.

Comments: Incredibly well-protected now, all bolts, solid 10, and the necessary crux holds still hold their edges... unlike a lot of other N. Table routes.

Comments: The first pitch is really fun but not very challenging. The second pitch had a bunch of lichen on it, was a bit more difficult, but was half the fun.

Comments: The middle flake seemed to groan a little, I trusted it to climb on but hesitated top put a cam behind it in case of a fall, although lieback moves would get you through. It's probably a better idea to stem, and face climb....

Comments: What a challenge! Got this one in on Monday before the weather moved in. The 5.7 approach isn't actually very difficult, it's one move at a time over blocks that returns to class 3-4 depending on where you traverse to get there.
The top anchor currently consists of a hex, an old tricam, the ancient piton, and an old bolt. The webbing is equalized and run through two opposing non-locking beiners. We had no problem rapping off of them. Plenty of placement for pro, there are 3 fixed nuts (one... more >>

Comments: Great route and incredibly sustained. The big flake marked with an x seems fairly stable (epoxy?); however, making those traverse moves without the use of it seems to make the finishing moves substantially more difficult (still very doable). Either way, a must do!
