Description

This is in the dead center of the Winterfest Wall, on the face in the back of the alcove. This route is pretty good quality, following a crack on the right for much of the climb. It is a good warmup for other climbs in this area. The third clip is pretty tricky, but it is made much easier by stemming out to the opposite wall on the left.

Protection

Six bolts to a two bolt anchor. QDs only.

Could use some new anchor bolts - significant rock crumbling behind the bolt heads. Jun 4, 2017

I love this climb! My all-time Table favorite. Tricky for the grade: I disagree with the sentiment that this is a good first 10a climb. It is well-protected, but compared to some newer routes, the bolts may be farther apart than one is used to.

Don't let that dissuade! A great climb, and with maybe one exception, clean falls if anything goes wrong. Just be careful going from bolt 2 to bolt 3. The climbing is not bad, but don't blow the clip.

Also: I disagree with the route description for clip 3: the clip is a tiny bit tricky but is quite clippable from below BEFORE you start the stemming, and I'm not tall. Both my partner and I made the clip and then did the stem to move past clip 3, but we didn't stem to clip. Jun 21, 2014

This is a really fun route, and, like so many of the climbs at N. Table, it can be led on gear if you're creative and inspired. Sure, this is a sport area, and I'm not dissing all the bolts---just trying to find more ways to squeeze some fun out of a limited resource. Aug 16, 2012

By far my favorite 10 at Table. Climbs unlike any of the other routes here. Super cool looking face. I look up at it and think: that needs to be climbed. Mar 20, 2011
I think this climb is super fun, a great 10.a for someone who is just entering the grade. I found the moves to be really fun, taking some mixture of the variations described above. Great stemming. Jan 25, 2003
