Description

This is probably the best 5.9 trad line at Table. Follow a hand crack to the left of Mrs. Hen Places a Peck. Lead through the airy roof and belay off of the anchor for the climb to the right.

Location

This is the obvious crack system through a roof to the left of Mrs. Hen Places a Peck....

Protection

Gear to 3 inches....

The handcrack is way harder than either Blind Faith or Handcracker in Eldorado, although neither of my partners had a problem with it. Feb 11, 2017

Way harder than 5.9+. I climbed it with 2 climbers who are competent at 5.10 - 5.11, and they had a hard time as well. Nov 7, 2016

Agree - this has to be the best 9 at N. Table. Fantastic jams! It's definitely steep @ the roof, but if you stem out, the jams above it are so bomber that it still felt like a reasonable 9 to me. Mar 29, 2015

In the Falcon Guides guidebook, this is a sport route which is what I climbed it as. But I agree with the other comments: felt hard for a 5.9. Aug 21, 2011

I totally agree with Gregg. Didn't feel like a 5.9+. Mar 17, 2011
