BETA PHOTO: "Steps" leading to vegetated ramp at sta...
Picnic Table 5.5 - 5.6 (R?)
P1 You may wish to bring a wire brush for a few of the footholds of the first 15-20 feet. Easily (5.4 or so) climb the slab on a left diagonal, moving onto the left (lowest) end of the vegetated ramp. Up this ramp to the dike. Clip the first Table Talk bolt above the dike [Possible belay here to reduce rope drag higher on the dike.] and then climb the dike (limited protection possibilities, and not attractive if wet). Belay a couple of feet left of where the dike cuts through the overlap. (i.e. at the alternate P2 belay for Bugs, The belay uses #1 [red] and #2 [gold] Camalots) 180-200 ft 5.5 5.6 (R?) It is also possible to belay before the overlap by stepping right to the Dick to the Rescue / Table Talk dbl bolt anchor.
P2 Follow the dike for 60-70 feet until one can climb up right to the "Bugs" Rap tree. 180 ft 5.4
START About 40-50 feet right of Bugs on a 15-20 ft-high, well-featured slab directly below a vegetated ramp that rises to the right. [NOTE: The FA (and 5.6R ?) may have started further right where the dike comes down to the ground a few feet left of the ugly cave, but the rock here is now very moss and lichen covered.]
Pro along the dike is sparse after the first "Table Talk" bolt until the area of the overlap.
