1. Diagonal right past 4 bolts, then up and slightly left, passing original 2-bolt belay to a small ledge with 2-bolts. (5.9 , 160’)

2. Easy climbing wanders basically straight up past a bolt then a ¼” rivet to a large rock on a ledge and 3 bolts. (165’)

3. A hidden stopper placement protects the first bulge move to easier climbing. Up past a bolt to the huge ledge and a 2-bolt belay about 30’ left of main corner. (5.6+, 160’)

4. Walk right a bit until you can access a diagonalling series of scoops that lead up right past 2 bolts to a crack. Up crack then diagonal left to a 2-bolt belay. (5.7, 135')

5. Up and right along ledge systems to a small bulge with pro, about 20’ left of the corner. Turn bulge and climb up steep rock past bolt to another large ledge with 2-bolt belay. (5.8, 140’)

4th or easy 5th class to summit. Rap the route.


On the far right side of Table Dome is a huge left-facing corner about 2/3 of the way up the rock that is the end of “First Come , First Served.” “Beggar’s” last 2 pitches finish up about 30’ to the left. Start right out of the streambed on a section of smoothe gray rock about 100’ before the right side of the dome.

Rap the route with double-ropes.


Minimal "backcountry rack"

I have done this route a couple of times. I find it to be great rock with great moderate climbing. Not for the meek of heart. I highly recommend this to anyone. Great job guys on putting it up for us. Jan 11, 2012

Another great line up Table Dome in the beautiful Coyote Domes Wilderness! Did this route a couple times back in '97 - '99. I remember very good rock (as dale says below)--more so than typical Mendoza routes. Quite obscure back there around the corner from the Wiley; gets shade way earlier as well. The route laid out on this page uses Imperial Cuisine (1 pitch route) as the starting pitch; the original route starts way right on 3rd class ramping terrain up left to the 1st pitch anchor.
