Description

Obvious arĂȘte/ramp curving up and left to the top of Table top.
Pitch 1: Follow the pillar up very low angle rock past 2 bolts to a 2-bolt belay a 15 meters above where the pillar meets the main face. 5.4 (70m)
Pitch 2: Continue up the arĂȘte as it steepens past 2 bolts and a few near-vertical sections to a large grassy ledge and 2-bolt belay. 5.6 (60m)
Unrope and walk up a ramp on the right side of the ledge to the summit plateau, which is about the size of a football field. Great views into the canyons between the neighboring towers.

Descent:

Rappel from top of P2 to top of P1 (~55-60m). Beware of rope snags.
Second rappel from top of P1 should go off side of arete directly to ground, do not try to follow the line of the climb (65-70m) DO NOT DO THIS RAPPEL WITH 60M ROPES!!!

Location

See description of the rock. There is only one feature on this rock that will go at 5.6.

Protection

Pitches are a bit run-out, so bringing a small selection of cams might be helpful in places. Cracks are sparse, but some pockets would take med sized cams every now and then.
