Description

Other routes have been mislabeled The John Roskelley Show. There is no need to change the channel, this is IT. It is quite an adventure, too. This is not really harder than 9+, but it sure will feel like it compared to some other Table 9s. From below, some sections look pretty blank, dirty, and improbable, but when you get going, some holds appear, and the gear is good. The crux is definitely the fist crack up top. Most of my adventure came when I knocked loose one of the chockstones that was holding back a truckload of dust and gravel right in my face! Fun!

Location

This is the dihedral a couple cracks left of Flight 67 to Stockholm. Start stemming up the dihedral left of Blow Chow (wave to the rats that live in there), resist the urge to clip a bolt (the squeeze job Take Flight). Continue gracefully stemming as long as you can until you are fist jamming, chimneying/battling upward in the hanging dihedral. When you feel like you are up, look down to your right and you'll see the anchor. Way down. Luckily it's an easy downclimb to them....

Protection

Standard rack and a shared anchor.

I did this 8 years ago and today. It is still fun but definetly not an easy climb. It all works out but it deserves its 9+ rating for sure. Apr 13, 2017

Bottom half looked not too fun from the bottom to me, that was false. The bird shit face midway looked thin, that was true but found gear. The right side of the bulge at the top looked fun, that was definitely true, and fists too! #4 was nice for the top. Feb 10, 2017
