Description

Follow the bolts. There are plenty of good holds all around and a fun bulge in the middle of the climb. It is labeled #48 in the image.

Protection

About 5 or 6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with quicklinks.

The Bastille Crack of North Table, which is to say that it almost always has a line waiting to send it. The climb is a bit easy for 5.9, but if you limit yourself to "between the lines" it gets closer to that grade. Feb 16, 2002

No line last Sunday! The first bolt is actually a little high for my taste. 4 bolts.

Actually if you don't like the section before the first bolt (which might be the crux), I discovered you can climb up to the left and reach right off some jugs to clip it. Then downclimb and begin directly under the bolt for "full credit". Oct 4, 2004
Probably fair at 9- but I find the 8+ on the arete to the right to be more challenging from the mental perspective. The first bolt on this one is not that hairy compared to the bolting of other routes at Table. Mar 19, 2006

It's much harder if you stay in between the lines. Jun 20, 2006

This is nice climb, but I missed some holds that would have made this a little easier. Jul 6, 2006

There are not winch hooks on this anymore, just quicklinks. Feb 9, 2013

This route (along with many others at Table) was re-bolted with stainless steel bolts and equipped with lowering hooks on 9/29/18. Thanks to the Boulder Climbing Community for organizing the rebolting effort. Please toprope through your own gear, and lower off the hooks when you clean the route. Nov 12, 2018
