Description 

A sandstone mesa overlooking the city of Boise. Table Rock sports a large electric cross and is easy to find. The rock quality ranges from loose grit to bulletproof slabs depending on what area you are climbing in. In the summer get here early in the day as there is little cover from the sun. This is the most easily accessible bouldering area to Boise and sees a good deal of traffic in the peak climbing season, but there are enough areas that crowds seldom form. For more complete information on Table Rock climbs and other Boise area climbs check out "Boise Climbs" by Sandy Epeldi.

Feel free to comment if corrections are needed.

Getting There 

To get to Table Rock follow Broadway Ave. north until you pass the hospital and the road curves left. If you are on State St. follow the road east until the road curves to the right. Reserve St. is the road jutting off of the curve here. Follow Reserve straight and it will curve up the hill and become Shaw Mountain Rd. Follow Shaw Mountain Rd to the top of the mesa where you will park.

Seeking input from local climbers...

I climbed here for a day (my first time to Table Rock) about a month ago. Does anybody know what the prominent 5.10-ish, right-facing, tips to fingers dihedral is towards the far right end of the tall south-facing cliffs? I lead it onsight and resorted to using a meat anchor at the top to rap back down, as the only bolted anchor around was about 10' left. Is this supposed to be the anchor for this route??? If not, I would like to add an anchor at the top of the crack the next time I'm in Boise (possibly Jan. 2016), as it is a fun route and deserves one. I have the tools and experience to do it right, but don't want to violate any local 'ethics', so am asking here.

I was able to locate a picture of the route here: images.summitpost.org/original... It is the shaded corner in the far left of the photo.

George,

Glad you had a fun time out there. A lot of those routes are holdovers from when golden days of Boise climbing. There is a moratorium on bolting in the area so sadly you won't be able to install anchors.
