Description

Pitch 1: Climb the left wall through some steep ground to a belay slightly back to the right.
Pitch 2: Follow a series of cracks up a nice, easy low angle and exposed face to a belay ledge. Belay or combine this with the next pitch.
Pitch 3: From the ledge head up and right around a roof to a vegetated ledge. Belay up and continue to the summit roped or unroped depending on your comfort level.

Fantastic route! I always recommend this route to anyone visiting Table for the first time. It can be a bit windy. While not the longest route in the area, it has the best position, high over a saddle between Table Rock and Hawksbill. You get great views of the upper gorge, Hawksbill and Grandfather Mountain to the north.

Location

Hike past the east face, then the walkdown from the routes that top out on the ledge. Continue up to a ridge that is exposed. Look up, on the corner is this amazing line.

Protection

Small to medium gear.
No fixed anchors except at the second belay there is a 2 bolt anchor.
