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"

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.

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
