Comments: 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!

Comments: Hey all you hard climbers! I had the pleasure of climbing the first pitch of this route a few days ago. I didn't mean to climb it. We were looking for the route up Sunflower Tower instead. When we arrived at the notch, I realized our mistake. Since I didn't feel like climbing the stellar (I found out later.) second pitch, we built a rappel anchor out of small cams.

We left a blue TCU, a green alien, a 0.75 Camalot, four 'biners (three bent-D and one locking), and an orange Metolius equalizing ... more >>

Comments: I've got to go back and finish this climb. We only climbed to the "ledge-with-a-bolt" after getting rained on. I thought the bolts on the 1st pitch were poorly placed. The 1st one was too low and the 2nd one was just out of reach. In any case, I decided to head left just under bolt #2 toward the Trooper Traverse line. Since people were on the TT, I climbed back right after mantling the bushy ledge that is even w/ the 1st belay station. I was quite amused @ the crappy bolt and hanger just d... more >>

Comments: I did this climb a couple of days ago. The lower wide start stymied me until I turned from having my right side in to having my left side in. I was able to paste my right foot on the ledge that you can't see from above. Combined w/ a little left arm-barring and I was on my way. The rest of the climb wore me out. Particularly my left foot. It was extremely strenuous. I hung-dog like a mofo. I'd like to go back when I've got more energy and give it a redpoint attempt. I'd call it 5.10+.
