Description [Suggest Change]

A fun route that pulls through the obvious V-notch to the right of the Crackerjack chimney, high on the south face of Table Rock. The third pitch is fun, while the second can be a bit awkward. Save this one for early or late in the year - it's hot up there in the summer!

P1: Start at a large, left-facing corner system that arches to the left (the corner is to the right of the start of Crackerjack). Climb up the corner, step left, and belay at a small ledge. (90 ft, 5.7) This can be continued straight through the lower roof to the hanging belay at the end of P2 at 5.10 (Hanging Hog variation).

P2: Climb up the awkward, occasionally dirt-filled crack, moving up and right to an awkward, hanging stance below the notch in the roof above. (75 ft, 5.8)

P3: Pull up and out of the notch, then savor the exposure as you move up and a little right to the top of the cliff (75 ft, 5.9)

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is on the south face of Table Rock. It climbs the obvious corner/V-notch feature.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Gear to 3". There used to be some fixed tat at the P2 belay around a rhodo stump, but regard any bush up there with suspicion...

An old rockclimbing.com description of Hanging High:

"Like bushes and rotten rock? Do this route. Follow the left arching dihedral to a comfy belay under a licheny and bushy face. Hack your way through bushes, and then up a short, rotten, overhanging corner. Finagle a rest after exiting the corner, then continue up and right through the clean face to the top. This face has the only decent climbing on the last pitch." Aug 25, 2017
