Description Suggest change

In 1997 or thereabouts Mr. Mayfield Peery donated the climbing crags, the parking areas, and the region of the approach trail to the Access fund in order to preserve climbing on North Table Mountain. This act rescued the area from development that was about to expand up the hill. Furthermore, it was an act of generosity that was taken in the face of vociferous opposition by the neighborhood residents, all of whom teamed up against Mr. Peery. Hearings were held at the Golden City Council meeetings, climbers spoke, neighbors spoke, and Mr. Peery quietly gave the land away, and he gave it away to the climbers. Pretty amazing. Particularly so when you figure how many people in the greater Denver metropolitan area use North Table Mountain for a quick after work pitch or so, or just to pull down a dozen routes in a day. I cannot think of another example where a single individual's generosity has so directly affected so many climbers - in a good way!!!! We put this route in in order to engrave in stone our thanks to Mayfield Peery. Sometimes we don't even recognize who our friends are, but we will not forget Mr. Peery.

The climbing on Mr. Peery Take A Bow begins with the first two clips of Mrs. Hen Places A Peck. Where Mrs. Hen cuts right onto the overhanging face, Mr. Peery cuts left up a short slot to finish on the arete of the Mrs Hen face. It is common to cop a rest before the crux by stepping off left above the slot. In princlple, and we can make up any rules we want, the route does not step left, but stays strictly on the arete. The moves are fun and well protected. Look for holds on both sides of the arete!!

Two stars for Mr. Peery; I'd give it five for him alone, but I still have to consider the climb itself.

Protection Suggest change

QDs only. This 60 foot route needs 8 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
