Description

This is a great little climb that mixes up some crack climbing with face climbing. It comes up under a roof to make an exciting conclusion.

Protection

3 of bolt, to a 2 bolt and chain with Mussy hooks anchor.

The photo for the route shows a guy moving from the left side. However, there is a challenging and fun start starting off to the right. It DEFINITELY feels harder than 5.8, and its a reach clipping the bolt, so you might think about a spotter. Jan 1, 2001
The direct start is about a V2 problem. It involves liebacking the sloping or flared crack then highstepping to gain the thin, slopey rail. Jan 1, 2001

Also, I suggest moving to the left crack below the roof earlier rather than later. Going out the roof is more like 5.9, with some fun-but-tricky moves to surmount. 5.8 is fair for the crack that goes just right of the roof. Jan 1, 2001

Direct start is probably 10 to 10+ depending on height, IMHO. Feb 26, 2004

Typical Table Mtn. short route fun. The direct start is most certainly reachy, but more fun and aesthetic than starting on the left. I would guess it would push the grade to 10-. Mar 25, 2004
This is a fun route and isn't a bad option when the crags are crowded since you can climb parts of this route many ways. You can do a direct start, left start, body chimney start, etc. I think I climbed it four different times and ways before moving on to the climb next to it. Aug 3, 2004

I think it's 4-bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Oct 5, 2006

Very cool to try to go straight up under the roof. Definitely some seepage while I was on it. Don't know if it's always like that. Sep 16, 2008

Direct start recommended. Pushes it up to 10. Then hit the roof direct as well. Nov 29, 2009

This route has a pretty fun, exposed hang if you're cleaning. Also if someone's toproping, be care near the top, it's easy to pendulum as you traverse to the anchor. Aug 6, 2015

Only 2 bolts and the 2nd is 15 ft left, use a small sling for both bolts to keep the rope straight. There's a single ring that's off route. Go right of the single ring to the 2 bolt anchor. It's easy, but you're pretty much free soloing. The left anchor bolt is loose, so make sure your anchor is able to equalize, and add extension limiter knots for safety. Hopefully we can get this bolt replaced. May 30, 2016
