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.


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


Gear to 3 inches....


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

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

Aside from Shadow of a Hangdog...best moderate trad line at North Table Mountain. Nov 4, 2011

Fun line but super bat guano filled on ledge in middle. Old school 5.9. Nov 10, 2012

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

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

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

Great route. Awesome hand jamming at the bottom. The roof is not as tough as it looks, but the setup moves just below are tricky and felt like the crux. This route felt as hard as the nearby 5.10a sport routes. A climber who is inexperienced with trad may have trouble with it.

There are two anchors at the top of this formation. The anchor on the left goes directly down this line and is shared with Toura Obscura. HTGT has another anchor that goes down that bolt line. Mar 17, 2019
