Hmm.... same anchor, different result. Dan Hare captured the line on this wall with a much better concept than Table Manners
. Pried out of the stainless steel center of the universe, he has uncovered another fine addition to the route count on NTM. Immediately to the right of Table Manners
and sharing a top anchor with Table Manners
is a line of black [now silver] hangers that identify Dan's route. The line picks out a couple of discontinuous aretes and links them up. The climbing was tricky and thought provoking and made perfect sense as a distinct route. I dropped a star for the discontinuities that provide complete rest between sections and another star for use of the grungy slot, even though this use is very brief. Overall, this was a satisfying climb to decipher and well worth the time. But, we have come to expect that of Dan, and I just want to climb the line he puts up when he is 65.
