Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

This crag is located on the far right fringe of North Table Mountain. It is marked by an two-tiered cliff band and only sports about [18] climbs: [7] on the lower band and the remainder on the upper band. The climbs are generally short, stiff climbs 5.10 and higher.

Getting There

Approach the Child Free Zone by climbing the trail from the parking lot and turning right at the base of the crag (the trail dead ends at This Ain't Naturita, Pilgrim). Follow the trail along the base of the wall past the arete that contains Thelma and Louise, past the gully, and around the corner. The trail eventually dead ends at the right side of the wall. The first route on this wall is Big Loose Goose (5.10a/b).

Does anyone know if the OW between Power And Lies and Rafiki has a name? I just did it, and it's fun!
