This route is on the right side of the main Winterfest Wall area. It is in the next alcove to the right of Sunset Arete. Start up easily identifiable thin cracks to the first bolt. The crux of this route comes about halfway up in a small, right-leaning slot. Wiggle up here, throw in a hip scum for a no hands rest, and clip the bolt out left. Work left out the top of the slot, and it's a jug haul to the anchors. Fun route.


QDs only. 7 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

It now sports 9 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

[This] is a really good route. The corner is [devious], instead of wiggling, i laybacked it. I was feeling great exposure and then suddenly remembered, there is a bolt at my feet!

Did this one a long time ago. I remember it as being a great climb. fun sequence of moves. I agree the small right facing corner halfway up is definately the crux. When your in there trying to figure it out, rest assured that those holds at the top of the corner on the face are HUGE jugs. Just go for it!!!

Climbed this route about the same time last year. As I remembered, it can be a little tricky getting into the crux corner as well as getting out of it. But once you're in there, it's a great stance to contemplate the exit moves.

The first bolt was removed by The Man From S.C.A.R.E. He left us a chalk message on the Winterfest Wall telling us that we sport trash were going to get the Table closed. This was before the land was donated by the Peery family to the Access Fund. He also took the first bolts from Kid's Climb, New River Homesick Blues, and Deck Chairs. They're all back. I'm glad AP figured out it was better to bolt his own routes instead, like Monkey Puzzle.

Very closely bolted as of 2008.

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.

I thought this route was one of THE BEST 10s I HAVE EVER DONE. Whoever retro-ed this did a great job. I like the bolt spacing, nice and comfy! Especially for people learning how to climb 5.10.

Nice job with the bolting and the retro job, Ken Trout!!!

Must have done this two dozen times over the five years I lived in Golden. It's one of the best routes at N. Table, and it can be led on all gear---for extra spice!
