|I think this climb is super fun, a great 10.a for someone who is just entering the grade. I found the moves to be really fun, taking some mixture of the variations described above. Great stemming.|

|By far my favorite 10 at Table. Climbs unlike any of the other routes here. Super cool looking face. I look up at it and think: that needs to be climbed.|

|This is a really fun route, and, like so many of the climbs at N. Table, it can be led on gear if you're creative and inspired. Sure, this is a sport area, and I'm not dissing all the bolts---just trying to find more ways to squeeze some fun out of a limited resource.|

I love this climb! My all-time Table favorite. Tricky for the grade: I disagree with the sentiment that this is a good first 10a climb. It is well-protected, but compared to some newer routes, the bolts may be farther apart than one is used to.
Don't let that dissuade! A great climb, and with maybe one exception, clean falls if anything goes wrong. Just be careful going from bolt 2 to bolt 3. The climbing is not bad, but don't blow the clip.
Also: I disagree with the route description for clip 3: the clip is a tiny bit tricky but is quite clippable from below BEFORE you start the stemming, and I'm not tall. Both my partner and I made the clip and then did the stem to move past clip 3, but we didn't stem to clip.
