Description

This is a small stretch of the butte just east of the Winterfest Wall. There are 10 routes listed in the Hubbel guidebook, some bolted some natural gear, ranging from 5.9 to 5.12 (most in the 5.9-5.10 range). Highlights include the Nine to Five arete (5.9+) with steep moves on big holds and the world's shortest finger crack, Crack and Face Route (5.10d) my favorite route at Table, and the cleverly named Widespread Shelfishness (5.12b). I assume the spelling in Hubbel (Widespread Selfishness) is a spellcheck-generated typo. This area even has a two pitch link-up: Nine to Five to Disappearing Man.

Getting There

From the parking lot head uphill and left when you get to the cliff. Keep an eye out for the Winter Warmer route up the tallest part of the cliff. About 100' past this is the 9 to 5 arete which marks the beginning of the area.
