Leave the nuts at home. You only need to bring a few tricams and some micro cams (00-0 TCU) and maybe a hand size piece for right below the bulge in some chossy rock. With that being said you'd be better off soloing this thing after some top rope rehearsal. At least then you wouldn't have the false hope of sub-par gear catching you! Jul 28, 2014
I am looking for the easiest and most effective way to set top rope on the Devils StandTable in Giant City SP in IL. Oct 20, 2014

Hey STWashko,

When Brendon Smith and I did it in the Spring of 14, we did a couple of things.
1. Locate two large trees 20 or so feet back from the cliff edge.
2. Tie a static rope off to one of them.
3. Run it to the edge of the climb.
4. Create your master point.
5. Run the other end of the rope back to the other decent sized tree and tie it off.

Note: When we climbed it, we plugged a few nuts to hold the master point in place. Oct 20, 2014
