Leading up the Dihedral

Description 

Lieback and stem up a nice finger crack that becomes increasingly dirty as you climb higher. Bring a brush if you're planning a toprope session. There are much better routes in The Arena, but this makes for a good warmup.

Location 

The obvious finger crack in the dihedral directly north of Table Boulder.

Protection 

I used 0.3 - 0.75 Camelot. Bolted anchor with chains at the top, shared with Road runner. Add a directional cam near the top of the crack if you wish to toprope.

Fun story: Years ago, when I was a teenager, I bought my first pair of climbing shoes and took them up to Table Rock with the intention of teaching myself to rock climb. Knowing practically nothing about climbing, including that ropes and crash pads are generally used, I thought it would be a good idea to onsight solo this line.
I made it most of the way to the top out, but got spooked by the crumbly exit moves and decided that my best course of action was to downclimb it. I managed to reverse a move or two but soon my feet slipped, sending me rocketing towards the deck at what felt like the speed of light.
Somehow I managed to roll out of the landing and walked away with nothing but a couple of tender heels and the realization that I should probably buy one of those rope things before I hurt myself!
