Bush wrangling.


This is a bottom feeder's delight.

This crack is just left of Table Top. A blocky start leads to a hand/finger crack that angels from right to left. The grade is around 5.8 if you keep your feet in the crack but may be a little easier if you use a wide left foot stem off the left wall.

We didn't set out to find a new route, but between my poor route finding skills and the guide which is a "little blurry" in the Table Top Area, this route found us and we were pleasantly surprised.

After climbing this route, you can easily setup a toprope on Table Top to maximize your mileage.


Light standard rack up to a #3 Camalot. At the top set your own anchor, or use an old bolt above Table Top to set a directional and use the Table Top bolt anchors.

This climb is somewhat dirty and only has a few good moves in the middle of the route. There are much better crack lines to be done in the area. I'd skip this one.
