|This is a fun mixed route. It could probably be lead without any of the 2 bolts, with RPs, nuts, and small cams. There are 2 open [shuts] at the top.|

I got rid of my old open hooks and replaced them with 1/2" bolts and winch hooks, down a bit for better hooks orientation. The original bolt snapped off pretty easy but are plenty of bolts now. Could be the best protected 5.10 at Table. After adding one bolt and an anchor 15 years ago I expected this route to catch on but it never did. Not usually good to change other's routes, but this always seemed an orphan needing some care.
As a pure gear lead, you'll need small wires, Aliens, and remember to "stick your chest out, keep your head up...and handy" (Tupac). "R" with no bolt clipped.
I'm almost positive this was a Berk brothers' route. The original bolt was the same style found on Flight 66, it's one of the least contrived tens at Table, and only the Berks were putting up routes this hard in the eighties.

|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.|
