Description

This is a somewhat chossy route (update: no longer chossy!), but if you want to warm up for the 10's and 11's, this is a decent option. Start from the left, and watch for moss, the first bolt is high.
Expect to stand on your feet for most of it, with only a few moves where you have to pull.

Location

In the middle of the Table Scraps Wall, about thirty feet left of side-by-side crack and water groove.
I've included this route on the Shipwreck wall because the Table Scraps wall, as an area, would only have one good route in it (Fish n Chips). Also, while Table Scraps is a separate face, it's hardly a separate area, they are a thirty second scramble from one another.
If you are trying to locate Table Scraps Wall, hike a steep, long uphill past Lower Shipwreck and Upper Shipwreck until you see a low angle slab on the right with decent rock.

Protection

Bolts, 7 or so

[Hide Comment] This route has cleaned up nicely and is well worth doing. Thoughtful and sustained on the upper face, I wouldn't call it chossy at all anymore. Jan 19, 2014
