BETA PHOTO: The route with climber hanging out at the roof.


This is probably the best 5.9 trad line at Table. Follow a hand crack to the left of Mrs. Hen Places a Peck. Lead through the airy roof and belay off of the anchor for the climb to the right.


This is the obvious crack system through a roof to the left of Mrs. Hen Places a Peck....


Gear to 3 inches....

I totally agree with Gregg. Didn't feel like a 5.9+.

In the Falcon Guides guidebook, this is a sport route which is what I climbed it as. But I agree with the other comments: felt hard for a 5.9.

Aside from Shadow of a moderate trad line at North Table Mountain.

Fun line but super bat guano filled on ledge in middle. Old school 5.9.

Agree - this has to be the best 9 at N. Table. Fantastic jams! It's definitely steep @ the roof, but if you stem out, the jams above it are so bomber that it still felt like a reasonable 9 to me.

Way harder than 5.9+. I climbed it with 2 climbers who are competent at 5.10 - 5.11, and they had a hard time as well.

The handcrack is way harder than either Blind Faith or Handcracker in Eldorado, although neither of my partners had a problem with it.
