Description

Polar Sandals is a new 35 meter climb at Table. Thanks to Kirk for equipping this line.

Start up the thin dihedral, then make cool moves (cruxy) left to the face of the "pillar". Slab it out for a couple bolts to a rest. There is some moderate climbing to a sweet mantle and another rest. Move left, and blast to the top on steep rock. Finish with an easy runout to the anchors. This has good movement, with upper and lower cruxes. I hope this cleans up as nicely as Ugly Stick.

PLEASE WATCH FOR LOOSE ROCK AS THIS CLEANS UP.

Location

This is on the Winter Warmer Wall, just left of Solar Panel.

Protection

A 70 meter rope is required.

16 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with ring and chains to lower or rappel.

Gear can protect the start, before the first clip: a #3 Camalot down low, and either a #1 or 0.75 just higher.

I thought this climbed way harder than 10b, more like 10c/d onsight. I'd like to go back after some traffic cleans up the lichen. The reach to the horizontal jug at 5'5" was at least 10a. The crux for me was reading the top out of the dihedral. Fun climb. Apr 19, 2014

Thanks for the recommendation Mr. Miller. Emma and I enjoyed the climb. The moves in the initial crack felt like 5.10 b/c. I've visited Table Mountain sporadically over twenty years, but I've never topped out. It was nice to climb a long, well-equipped route!

This route is a fun climb, but I think it is harder than 10-. I think it is 10c/d. The starting dihedral is definitely not 10- unless I really missed something. Regardless, I enjoyed the route. May 21, 2014

16 clips plus 2 for anchors; a 70m works great. Didn't feel the need for gear at start. Route climbs better than it looks and was pretty clean as of 2/8/2015. Feb 9, 2015

The rating has changed since I first did the climb. I have now done it three times, but it does not feel any easier. A great pitch, but the start is stout! Sep 11, 2016
