Description

A longer walk than most areas at Table, there are some nice routes that are for the most part short and steep.

Getting There

This is the second furthest west section of Table Mountain that is continuous, save for the Pinnacle Area, another 1/2 mile along. Hike up to the base of the cliffs, then continue west for a ways. The wall rises up more steeply, offering some long climbs, on the Winterfest Wall area. Continue past for another 60 yards or so.

Someone went around stealing hangers off a lot of the routes I put up or helped put up (Big Red Catcher's Mitt, Sinister Minister of Evil, etc.). What the hell? I suspect some had problems with the sudden proliferation of bolts. These routes were never meant to be wonderful, just momentary winter diversions (we thought the stench from Coors would be enough to drive away most of the crowds). My thanks to Alan for replacing the hanger on Risk. Oct 5, 2003
