Comments: This is a great, shorter climb with a puzzling crux section. Pull through a variety of underclings after a short slab section. Secretive moves allow the climber to establish themselves on the upper slab where a giant hand jam provides a rest after the pump. Although short, this climb has lots to offer.

Comments: The chickenheads on the upper part of this wall are NOT to be missed. If you are a 5.11+ climber, do it in your sandals, tennis shoes muck-lucks, if you need it harder, but DO it. If you are a trad climber, bring a small rack and a bunch of slings to "choke the chickens" at the top. This one is a G-rated trad climb!

Comments: Interesting 5.10-ish moves for the first two clips give way to the roof. There was a hornet's nest forming at the roof which I demolished before finishing out the climb. The crux sequence is fun, and a bit committing. There are some small holds that are useful for shorter climbers under the roof. One 5.11 move guarantees the summit. You can clip with one hand off the jug off the roof with your feet dangling, not that I'd ever do anything like that ;-). Fun for spectators and clim... more >>

Comments: Nice climb, if inconsistent. Start the early V2 boulder problem to the arete, sticking to the left as much as possible. Balancy moves give way to easier climbing and the roof above. Pull through the second V2 problem on good holds (if you can find them) past two well-placed bolts. Watch for the z-clip through the second crux. There is no way this climb is PG-13. All of the clips are well placed.

Comments: I think this climb has 2 cruxes. One is below the roof, a technical sequence on a flake that looks like it could go. This climb will probably get harder when it does. There's some beta to get through the second crux involving your left hand. The second crux has a large move which is great fun. Get on it!

Comments: FA: Chris Perkins Todd Leeson, Summer 2009.

The crux pitch, the left-leaning crack, was done without bolts on the FA.

On the second pitch of the FA, I told DD that I was going to step up "here" place a piece of gear, see if we needed any bolts and then move up, pointing to a large, pointy hold. I then proceeded to grab aforementioned hold, and pulled off a large sliver of rock bigger than my arm. Gotta be careful out there!

Comments: Actually, I was thinking about this. "Whole Lotta Sober" is the line _just_ left of this line. It is still trad and pulls through the weakeness in the roof. The crux is pulling onto the blank-ish face above the hang. Good pro at the crux. "First Blood" pulls the roof further left of this.

This line was bolted after Whole Lotta Sober and is yet to be named. I have the FA on both lines, and have not thought of a name yet. Tod's son did the SA. It's definitely 5.7 and sports a giant "surpr... more >>

Comments: This climb was fitted with bolts summer of 2010. FA Chris Perkins. Indeed it can be lead via trad, but the end of the climb is pretty run out after pulling the roof, and the wall in general needed more beginner routes.

Comments: The bolt is missing, but if you bring a 1/2 inch long 3/8ths bolt and a hanger you can place it and then do the route. It's a great lead. Be sure to remove your bolt when you are done with it or the route may suffer some vandalism from the person who put the bolt in in the first place (wonder who that is).

Comments: The route is "passing the baton" There's only 12 bolts in the route's 45 feet. Watch out for the run outs!

Comments: I could be wrong, but I do not remember seeing a piton when I climbed this. Nevertheless, it protected well.

Comments: This climb is not to be missed. Interesting climbing the whole way, and while the bolted crack probably detracts from the climb, most people would just skip it rather than bring one piece of gear, so it seems justified. Interesting moves up top with insecure feet on steep terrain, but it's definitely all there.

Comments: I feel like the start is more like 5.7, and the slab above more like 5.4. The only thing that makes the start tough is that you can't really see your feet, but there are huge footholds through that section.

Comments: The Tyrol for this crag has but one line on it presently. I plan to put in a new static line for this popular crag on Thursday, June 3rd, 2010.

Comments: The length of this climb combined with interesting flake pulls at the bottom and an exposed roof near the end make this my favorite 5.10 at Table.

Actually no, it's terrible, must be avoided. Don't even t/h/i/n/k a/b/o/u/t/, I mean bother with this one. Spread your chalk covered, slimy sunblock covered hands elsewhere.

Comments: Nice line. Bottom climbs like a being in a giant's house and going up the stairs. Set of cams to 3" is all you really need, Save the bigger placements for towards the top.
