    East Face
    A buttress to the left of the Peek-a-boo gully below a tree ledge. It is the closest route right of Hidden Crack.


    First Pitch: Climb up a buttress with three bolts and two horizontal cracks (first being the Cornsnake Crack) before the tree ledge with two anchor bolts.

    Second Pitch: Starts out to the left of the tree above the anchors. There is about twenty feet of face climbing with one bolt protecting it. Then an awesome vertical crack with many possible placements. The crux is a "blocky" move where the crack dissipates.Keep to the right of the small growth and there will be two anchor bolts. To rappel two sixty meter ropes are needed.


    First pitch: 3 bolts and 2 horizontal cracks.
    Second pitch: 1 bolt and a long vertical crack.

    Made the mistake of thinking this was hidden crack and expected 2 more pitches above.. Ended up doing right side of the vegetated ledge to the right of the P2 anchor and felt like that was closer to 5.10. Continued up above the 2nd pitch to a nice big ledge. Found a crack and followed it to a roof, then did a peek-a-boo-ish move out right up more then left to a ledge. Felt 5.8R. Then made a traversing pitch up and right to the lightening ledge. Lol what an adventure! Always good times on table..

    Another quality Table Rock route. The first pitch is okay but the second pitch is fantastic. Once you reach the ledge after the first pitch you will see a lone bolt about ten feet up, this is the start of the second pitch. Second pitch takes great pro and is very safe. The crux is engaging, fun and well protected (#10 BD stopper at yo face!). Bring plenty of extendable draws for the second pitch.

    • You can also climb Wolly Aphid and Aphid in my Pants off the same belay ledge.
    • Two 60M ropes are not mandatory, you can make two separate rappels to the base.
