Description

Several new routes have been put up in this sector of North Table Mountain, and Good Man Dan is the latest addition by the Mad-Uni-Bolter, Alan Nelson. The major features of this sector are the arete climb, Brain Cloud and Shadow of a Hangdog, the crack to its right. Next is a trad "gully" and right of the trad gully is Table Manners, followed by another Dan Hare route with black hangers, and then an arete. The arete is Good Man Dan. Two easy clips take you to the crux and the third clip. I found this third clip awkward and preferred an extendo clip at the third bolt, however, pinching a minor chip below an obvious jug, sets this clip up well, just watch the balance! Fun moves and more pumpy than it would appear, Good Man Dan at least will not blow up in your face unless you miss the third clip. Good stone with some discontinuity in the climbing.

Protection

QDs only. This 55 foot route needs 8 draws or so and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
