Description

The original description was deleted upon request by the original contributor. The following may be upgraded:

This is a section of North Table Mountain right of the Industrial Buttress. As with most sections of North Table Mountain, you can find short sport, trad, and boulder problems. You can also carefully approach some of the anchors by circling around to the tops of the cliff via low-angle breaks in the cliff. This area can be subject to the wind on the breezy days. There are pockets of shade here on the hottest days, but most of the routes are in the sun here.

Getting There

This area lies approximately in the middle of the climbing areas of North Table Mountain. It faces roughly SW. Park at the designated lot below the East end of the climbing areas below the S face of North Table Mountain. Contour West along the trail past the Tradlands. If you have reached the Industrial Buttress, with the 67 painted on the rock, you've gone too far.

Per Brent Kelly: the GPS coordinates are: 39.768248, -105.217852.
