Description

This is a great trad lead. Immediately to the left of Crawling up Roseanne's Belly, (two climbs to the left of Bimbo in Limbo) is a great prominent crack which is a bit harder than it looks. A variation starts to the right, 5.9- (directly under Roseanne's Belly.)

From David Hous, this dihedral is just left of the Crawling Up Roseanne's Belly arete, about 50' right of the prominent Stella buttress. Apparently there are two alternative starts, we started on the right. In either case the real prize is the upper dihedral. A beautiful crack eats medium cams and a few 5.8 stemming and/or lieback moves will get you to the anchors on top of Roseanne. An underated route on the quality scale in the guidebooks, this is the nicest crack/trad route of its grade I've done at Table. An excellent route for aspiring trad leaders. (Route #177 in Hubbel's guide, #14 in Rolofson.)

Last 15ft are fantastic and exhilarating with thick mits, but with tiny Trump hands probably feels glorious. I remember wanting more #1s, placed one #2, left my 0.4 at home, was wishing for that. Apr 23, 2017

Rock was clean and poop free today....

I found it a bit committing for a modern day 5.8, on the other hand it was easily protected. 5.8+.

My gear beta - smaller gear at the bottom, 0.3 to #1. Actually, I had wished for two 0.3 or 0.4, I forget exactly.... For the top, a 2 & 3 - although I never ended up using my #3. It would depend on exactly where you decide to place as the crack seems to span the 2-3 size. Don't bring a #4. If you have enough cams, you won't need to place any nuts. Oct 20, 2013

To make this climb a little more interesting, one could avoid using some of the obvious face holds around this climb and stick to jamming the crack. This is a fun little lead, but the many face and stemming options take away from the great hand-crack. The lower crack takes small cams and medium nuts and the upper crack eats #1-2 cams. Enjoy.

Nice line. Bottom climbs like a being in a giant's house and going up the stairs. Set of cams to 3" is all you really need, Save the bigger placements for towards the top. Jan 27, 2010

A fun trad route, one of the few pure crack climbs at Table. I clipped a bolt down low with a long sling before pulling above the bush. Bring your #1 and #2 Camalots for the top. May 1, 2006

An excellent crack climb; one of the best 5.8s at Golden Cliffs. Bring extra hand-sized cams and you can sew it up. Sep 3, 2003
So far, the best crack in the 5.8 range [I've] done at [Table Mtn]. Good, good fun. No birds in lately, nice climbing. Jan 13, 2003
This crack is home to many birds right now, and as a result is a little slippery. May 8, 2002
