Description

Table Talk Rated 5.10b (plus the usual 5.5 PG/R) by the FA-er's I've left the rating, but feel it's thinner than the "10c" of Dick to the Rescue. Table Talk climbs the beautifully clean white granite on the far right of the slab. This clean granite looks so white that, when viewed from the Kancamangus Highway in anything but summer, one would think it was ice!

P1 – START- Same a Picnic Table - Climb to the top of the vegetated ramp, and clip the bolt directly above the dike, then climb straight up the clean, white rock between two swaths of dark lichen-covered rock, passing 3 more bolts, step left (through one of the lichen streaks) to reach the double bolt anchor. 100 ft 5.10b [+ ?]

P2- Climb the beautiful, well protected pitch 2 of Dick to the Rescue , or ALTERNATE per Webster: “up poorly protected, lichen-covered slabs.” DUH! what a choice!

Location

START- Essentially the same as Picnic Table or Dick to the Rescue, then move up the vegetated ramp a few feet to where the dike becomes obvious.

Protection

Draws for the 3/8" bolts
