Sending Choss is an interesting line that winds up being looser than it looks but has some interesting moves. Don't do this unless you like to tread lightly on adventure rock. In fact, the average North Table Mountain climber won't like this route.

If we haven't scared you away yet, start up a dihedral on the left side of the Crater Crag. Be careful with the blocks on the right of the start. On the upper part, there are certainly fragile holds to use and stem on. The face just left works when the dihedral rock quality submerges. The topout is loose...but on a small scale.

Use an anchor off to the right to belay.

We cleaned probably a hundred pounds of rock of this one, but another hundred or more may come off if that upper flake system fails. Watch yourself.

I don't think this warrants fixed hardware.


This is on the far left side of the Crater Crag.


An anchor using #3, #3.5, and #4 Camalots works. Using your rope to sling your top belayer is better.
