This is located 50 feet+ to the right of Winter Warmer, this is the large open book starting about 15 feet off the ground.

We did this route using the crack in the back of the dihedral (5.10a) it is apparently 5.10c if you don't use the crack. This climb feels a lot bigger than it looks once you get up into the dihedral. You can get an all-day rest half way up by putting your back on the right wall and your feet just below the tiny roof. It is a very trad route except for the bolts!

F.A.T.A.L. = Femurs And Tibias Alternating Laterally.


5 bolts plus 2 bolt anchor.

Femurs And Tibias Alternating Laterally - I think. Probably referring to the 10c stemming variation. Mar 14, 2002

This may be called NO GUMBIES! First route left of Ugly Stick? Jim Burtle put this route up about '93 or '94. It's a fun line for advanced ten leaders. Climb the excellent face direct between bolts, not the trad-lite corner. I'll be happy to get winch hooks on the anchor, if Home Depot stockers can keep up with me. Dec 23, 2007

This IS F.A.T.A.L. Leon Henkelman bolted the route in 1994/1995. Leon and Ralph Bidwell did 1st ascent. Look at Mark Rolofson's revised guide w/ great pictures and comments. Also, Jason Haas has a recent guide w/ pictures. Depending on how route is done, it is either a .10b or .10c-- 3 1/2 star rating. (Femars And Tibias Alternating Laterally). Different than most Table Mtn climbs -- it requires good stemming technique for a more comfortable climbing experience. Jan 17, 2011

This route is tricky for your typical sport climber (me). I took a weird fall right in the middle of the dihedral and managed to bonk my head on the arete pretty good. I then managed to send, but NEWBIE BEWARE! Not your typical Table 10- in the least. Super fun though. For pure technique and style points, I think this is one of the most fun 10s at Table. Too bad it's not longer. Mar 6, 2011

Crazy wide stem out at the edge makes it a heady lead. I thought it was more like 11 minus out at the edge partly due to the physicality of moving up in a huge stem stance and partly due to the aforementioned heady lead. There are plenty of easier 11s at NTM than this route. Having said that, I think the difficulty depends on where in the dihedral you climb, eh? Feb 3, 2012

Needs rebolting. Rusty 1/4 inch and angles. The extremely reachy second bolt should be repositioned too. Jan 6, 2018

Without a hardware upgrade, I would not recommend this climb. The 3rd and 4th bolt are dangerous (the worst I've seen in a while at NTM and most definitely wouldn't fall/slip on them). This needs upgraded badly or someone will get hurt. Also, I would not recommended this for a new leader at the grade (5.10- is a sandbag). First two bolts are awkward to clip along with deck potential onto a ledge. Consider a supplemental cam for the first bolt that is at least 20+ feet off the ground. Fun climbing however. Jan 6, 2018
