Description

Dead vert climbing up monster "Table Rock" features: Chicken head pinches, killer cobbles, and even a cool pocket. The start is a little chossy, but 2 moves over a little bulge and you reach big buckets and a small scoop. Rest up, from here on up, it is vertical with great stances and large jugs with slightly smaller features connecting the "dots" which are usually huge cobbles. Heading out right to the big crack will definitely make this climb easier. Following the bolts up the middle of the rib was the envisioned line, but with features everywhere, the line can be rather arbitrary.

Location

3rd route from the right, just left of Soul Sister Thunder.

Protection

7 bolts + anchors. This route had an obvious TR anchor above it, so at some point in the past this line had obvioiusly been TR'd. You might want to stick clip the 1st bolt as it is fairly high to avoid the loose rock under the bulge. I bouldered up to it in my tennis shoes, so I figure even people without a stick should be fine with a spot.

Really fun route, probably the best at the crag, four stars if it wasn't for the bottom half. Second half is sweet, vertical, sustained 5.7, maybe 5.8. If we go with a 10a benchmark, similar climb like 'Stupendous Man' at Pinnacles, this is significantly easier. Oct 1, 2016
Several lose bolts at the bar of the climb, first two or three. And u don't just mean the clip spins that would be fine, but the whole anchor into the rock wiggles a good bit. Other than that a fun not quite 10 route Sep 20, 2015

I think this is the best route at the crag. Just fun with monster jugs and very flowy movement. Nov 22, 2014

Right, that seems clear. I climbed it direct and it still didn't feel like 10a. Regardless, a very fun route. Thanks for putting it up! Mar 28, 2013

If you avoid the direct start, straight up from under the first bolt, you simply are not doing the route. You are cheating out of the crux and either doing the start of Table Scraps (left) or Food Baby (right). I have watched several people do this, and that's cool, but then don't comment it is easier than 10a if you purposefully avoid the crux,lol :-) Mar 27, 2013

Definitely felt more like 5.9 or even 5.8. Even so, really great exposure and generally lots of fun. Mar 26, 2013

My first 10a lead. It's a well-protected, fun, ego-booster...climbed more like a 5.9- to me. (And I'm not one to ever say a climb's easier than its listed rating!) Mar 2, 2012

This was the most sustained of the 7 or so routes we did. Unfortunately, it's more of a 5.9 than a 5.10. Oct 5, 2010

Now that I've led all the pinnacle's routes this is clearly my favorite--a sustained yet moderate and safe adventure on vertical rock. And a photogenic climb as well--my friends all want to be photographed on it! Sep 7, 2010

The holds were suprisingly solid. It didn't feel like 5.10, although a direct start under the first bolt might be. I clipped the first bolt from the right and pulled the overhang a foot or two to the right of the bolt. Jun 7, 2010
