The Table Top area can be logically said to begin on the left with Mind Mantel Arete.

Begin in the corner system just right of the detached pillar. The East face/arete is MMA. Start off a ledge to get the first clip and begin to angle left for the arete. Above the second clip, one has the choice to move right for 5.10 or stay with the arete for 5.11. Either way gives a solid route on very good stone. Most things are obvious, but staying with arete requires a bit more hunting for the holds.


Quickdraws and a rope.


I thought that the arete was easier than the face, the only hard part on it was right above the third clip (or maybe the second clip). The face was thin as shit, and I found myself hooking back over to the arete to spare myself of the Elvis leg. Sep 21, 2003

10c IMHO if one starts up the crack, then steps left to the arete. Watch out for the large chockstone to the right of the route, between bolts one and two. It looks very poised to go, and is very tempting to stand on. If our gear wasn't strewn around the bottom of the climb, I would have kicked it a few times as I was rapping down. Apr 19, 2005

If you climb the crack/face, you'll end up in the right-arching crack below the anchors. The 24" long chockstone up there is definitely getting looser. It won't change the route, but be careful. Sep 19, 2011

Hard to give this route a single rating because of the two (or more?) variations. If you climb the right-side crack, then traverse left along the horizontal crack between B2 and B3 to the arete, it feels like 10a to me. Climbing up the arete but using holds on both sides of the arete feels like 10c. Straight up the bolt line without reaching around the arete is definitely harder. Fun route regardless. (Chockstone note: The only way this rock will move is by lifting it with about 70 pound of force, and it can only move up about half an inch. It is very well seated against any outward or downward movement.) Apr 14, 2013

I know I'm beating a dead horse by bringing up all the variations again, but I climbed the arete proper all the way, then toproped the crack + face to the right, never touching the arete. Although they are close together, they make 2 entirely distinctive routes with entirely different styles, and I though each one was worthy of 3 stars on its own. Of course, at pretty much any point, you can switch between the two variations, but Table is already full of squeeze jobs. I think it would be more clear to list them as 2 separate routes. If you're climbing one of them, have some fun and do both variations without crossing. Jan 27, 2017
