Up Sidesaddle

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 >>>


The right-most climb on the ort wall, and the most popular warm-up in the grotto. Big jugs with unnecessary slopers in between, the only difficulty is identifying which holds are good.


5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Either bring a sling for the third bolt, skip it, or deal with the drag.

This was a great warmup, not too tough, not too easy.

Pick the right route for a 5.9.

The top anchors are definately getting thin, and I personally WOULD NOT top rope off of them.

There is a new route to the right, so this now the 2nd route from the right. Anchors are still dodgey in my opinion.

This is the line to the left of Cowboy Up. The anchor looks in good condition to me in April 2013.

Pretty much a jug haul. Good route for a novice climber/leader.
