Description

Located on the same face as Widespread Shelfishness on the left side, this is about 100' left of the Nine to Five arete. This is my favorite route at Table. You can start directly under the first bolt on a small buttress with a thin, balancy, face move (10b/c?) or you can do the crack to the right which is easier. If you can't reach the bolt from the top of the small buttress, slot a stopper or two behind the flake at your knees. Pull through the sustained crux on thin edges and up to good holds on a horizontal ledge. Head on up the steep jug haul to the anchors. Lower to ground, repeat. (It is route #152 in Hubbel, #29 in Rolofson.)

Protection

5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. You may want to add a small stopper or two at the bottom and the guidebooks recommend a #2 or #3 Friend between the 4th and 5th bolt.

This route was a bit crazy I thought. The first two bolts were very run out. I might recommend bringing with you some small nuts and cams. If you were to slip just before clipping the second bolt (about 30' up), you would probably fall to the ground. Nov 29, 2014

First ascent, 1990 or '91: Ernie Moskovitz and Dave Fields. Widespread Shelfishness is my funky twelve to the right and not nearly as good as Crack 'N Face. Apr 25, 2008

This is one of my favorite routes @ Table. I like the direct start up to the first bolt. The moves off the ledge (crux) are super cool and the steep juhaul to the top is really fun. Feb 23, 2004
