Description

P1: Climb up the right-facing corner. Then traverse right and up to the vegetated ledge. Walk right along the ledge to belay at bolts and rings. (75 feet)

P2&3: Climb straight up from the belay. Trend slightly left around the overhang above, clipping a fixed piton. Continue up the obvious weakness, past short cracks and a bolt. Belay at bolts and rings on the lower-angled terrain above (belay sometimes wet), or continue along easier climbing to bolts and rings at the left end of the Lunch Ledge. Most parties combine pitch 2&3. (150 feet)

Location

On the east face of Table Rock. Heading left from the Ellie Raynolds Memorial Buttress (a large buttress with a wide slot on the left side), the first right-facing corner system you come to is Slippin' Into Darkness(5.9), on the right edge of the Helmet Buttress. Continue around the Helmet Buttress to the left to a shorter, lower-angled right facing corner. This is the start of the Helmet Buttress route.

Protection
