At the anchors.


This climb is located immediately left of Unknown #4 and is listed as #5 in the Classic Rock Climbs guide to N. Table Mountain. While Unknown #4 follows the obvious line on the right of the alcove, Unknown #5 works up more serious terrain to the left. Strenuous opening moves gain a large ledge using a vertical crack to the left. Once above the ledge, the climbing switches to thin face climbing. There are plenty of small, crimpy holds to haul yourself up to the anchors on. The upper portion of this climb is a blast.


5 quickdraws and something for the 2 bolt anchor.

Based on the cryptic description, I assume this is the "Unknown Q" in the Haas/Schneider guide. If so, it has 5 bolts, not four. This is a fun route.

Thought I'd pass along that only one of the anchor hangers has a ring to rap off of... the other bolt is a thick hanger, so probably not too bad to rap off but definitely can't lower off

This route has quite a few loose holds and very bendy flakes. About halfway up the route are two large rocks embedded loosely in the wall, one had split and fell out of the wall, and I had to catch it before it killed my belayer. If you're doing this route, be wary of the remaining loose rocks. They were too large for me to move, but there's nothing holding them in the wall. Aside from that, very fun.
