Please do not place any new bolts or fixed hardware at Table Mountain, and minimize our impact here. Climbing is open, with restrictions: private property. MORE INFO >>>


Starts from the anchors shared by To Pin or Not to Be and Moss Critique. The first bolt is shared with Premature Ejection, then Journey to Find the Sun heads right past the first roof, where a difficult clip just above the roof is the first crux. From there, the climb gets less overhanging and holds get slopier. The first set of anchors is the finish to Premature Ejection.


Starts from the anchors of To Pin or Not to Be. 5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor, then there's another bolt before a second 2 bolt anchor 115' off the ground.

Presently, there's a lot of lichen growing above the first set of anchors, so keep that in mind if you intend to climb up to the top.

Remember to stay on route, though it is tempting not to, as it's quite tough to figure out where to go after the third bolt.
