While only using the thin left crack of Table Manners is certainly a bit contrived, it makes for good practice working the difficult fingers and feet of thin cracks.
Also a surmountable lead because if you ever get too scared you can just cheat ritht when placing gear.
Pro to 1 inch. Can top rope by climbing any of the other nearby routes.

Very contrived, but what a beautiful crack! ~1" for nearly the whole length; a very good challenge, and I would say solid at 11a. Certainly harder than Rawhide, and also feels harder than Snake Bite at 11b. Would be 4 stars without the contrived nature of it.

Contrived or not, this is an awesome splitter that deserves more loving. Climbing the crack straight in is super fun, enjoyed this more than rawhide. Mostly #0.5 and #0.75 with some finger sizes near the top.
