Description

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

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

Protection

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...
