Description Suggest change

A Table Rock classic that roasts in the sun on the south face. The bombay chimney on the last pitch is a delightful squirm.

This is the obvious corner/crack/chimney system that splits the south face of Table Rock.

Start: Beneath the obvious corner system. There is often a cheater stack at the base to help folks through the hard first move.

P1: Make a hard high step (perhaps the crux of the route), then wander up the crack in the corner to below the big roof (older anchor below roof). Exit right (5.7) through steep ground on good holds and belay above. NOTE: If you don't want to bring big cams (4" or so) to belay in the main crack, there is a stance up and right on a block. The pro for this second anchor is good but tricky to find.) EDIT: Apparently there are bolts here now. Who knows how long they will last.

P2: Move up the widening crack. Navigate a bulge (great hand jams in the back) and pull into an alcove atop a chockstone in the chimney (possible belay). Squirm up the chimney above.

Location Suggest change

This is the obvious corner/crack/chimney system that splits the south face of Table Rock. It is visible from the parking lot.

Approach by hiking the TR summit trail a few hundred yards until the East Face climber's trail cuts right. Go ~200 feet along the East face trail, then look for a small trail heading uphill. Follow this small trail for ~100 yards.

The climb starts below the obvious corner. Look for a cheater stack that often helps folks through the challenging first move.

Protection Suggest change

Nuts and cams to 3"; optional 4" piece for the belay atop P1.
