Comments: To get around to the rappel station, follow the gully off the north side of the summit and down-climb about 50 feet, then traverse left. You will follow some mellow 5th class ledges loosing some elevation and traversing west. There is a slot that you will climb what will feel like a roof, through a slot.

Keep heading west while descending over the grass ledge and around the next bulge. Continue around this curve 50 or so feet further, continuing to loose elevation. Right before this turns i... more >>

Comments: Two pitches, stopping on the ledge above the 'Signs of Life' anchors, makes for a great belay ledge to hang out on; in addition, lots of space to build an anchor in the crack before the 'crux'. It provided two cruising, trad pitches with the crux, just off that ledge moving left into the massive dihedral above. The dihedral can be climbed straight up at a very easy 5.5 and protects with a few #1 Aliens (or change directions and climb the last pitch of 'Zenotropia' ,10/c (the fac... more >>

Comments: Can be done on gear relatively safely. I clipped two bolts, the first and the last, and could have probably done without either.

Comments: Did the original pitch 1 today, misinterpreted the route & ended up trying to climb that rotten flake at the traverse to the pin. Pulled a piece off and almost yarded on the precariously placed gear below me. Took a minute to get moving to the left. I'll never make that mistake again.

Comments: Slotted a nut in the the crack just below the p4-5 belay (old refrigerator block), my second couldn't get it out. New fixed gear?

Comments: RiggerMortis, +1. My second was tired and didnt want to climb this. I should have built an anchor, rapped, and reclimbed it to retrieve gear. The bolts and rap anchor are just too far away and put too much tension on the rope to pull it.

Comments: I shoved an arm and a foot in that crack and shimmeyed right up it. It takes all larger gear. A number 2 went in the bottom, and it only gets larger!

Comments: To follow the flake all the way up maybee makes this a 5.9. It does get gritty and sandy. There are two serts of anchors, one old school in front of you and a newer set behind you. There is relatively new webbing on the left bolt, but with three sections of webbing on it and two skeptical ones (bird urine soaked) on the other side, it made me wish I had more webbing on hand and a knife, to replace and rebuild. Worth the climb to the top, however, and nice to avoid that crappy traverse.

Comments: Interesting enough warm-up, not worth going out of your way for, but if you're like me and enjoy hauling around the extra weight in gear anyway, it's worth a climb. Plus my second was just learning trad, so it was fun to sew it up and have him pull all the gear out and up the wall.

Comments: Incredibly well-protected now, all bolts, solid 10, and the necessary crux holds still hold their edges... unlike a lot of other N. Table routes.

Comments: Interesting but short...by the time you get to the 'climbing', you're 20 feet off the ground.

Comments: The first pitch is really fun but not very challenging. The second pitch had a bunch of lichen on it, was a bit more difficult, but was half the fun.

Comments: The middle flake seemed to groan a little, I trusted it to climb on but hesitated top put a cam behind it in case of a fall, although lieback moves would get you through. It's probably a better idea to stem, and face climb....

Comments: What a challenge! Got this one in on Monday before the weather moved in. The 5.7 approach isn't actually very difficult, it's one move at a time over blocks that returns to class 3-4 depending on where you traverse to get there.
The top anchor currently consists of a hex, an old tricam, the ancient piton, and an old bolt. The webbing is equalized and run through two opposing non-locking beiners. We had no problem rapping off of them. Plenty of placement for pro, there are 3 fixed nuts (one... more >>

Comments: Great route and incredibly sustained. The big flake marked with an x seems fairly stable (epoxy?); however, making those traverse moves without the use of it seems to make the finishing moves substantially more difficult (still very doable). Either way, a must do!

Comments: At the overhang, you can either go straight up the bolt line to thin hands/slopy side pulls (my book calls this 11...) or use the crack 2 feet to the right, (with the bolts just at your left hip) 10b,
one of the more interesting climbs at the crag, & well-protected.

Comments: This route starts the same as Quicksilver (which goes straight up the face through crimps over the roof 10c? Erica however moves to the right and over the roof via a large flake (at bolt 6), the crux is getting your feet set on the roof prior to continuing to the finish. As of today 6/10/13, there is only one (sissy) hanger at the top, you can however clip this and continue past it to the chains for Thunderhead, on the ledge and to the right.

Comments: Although the tree stand is still "broken", the climb down is simple: there is a rope there and still two good 'step limbs'. We hauled a dog over there today and easily passed/lowered her. Decent climbs, good texture on the rock, most cruxes seem to have "tricky" feet.

Comments: FALSE, PVS and The Green Zone do not share an anchor. However, the anchor for Free Up The Weed does.

Comments: Wow, led this one today with the beta from Mr. Mabe's book and wanted to follow the old bolt route. Could have been one hell of a whipper. Anyway, I got spit off it once and would add that RAP CLEANING THIS ROUTE IS A PAIN IN THE A@*! as the line ascends up and left.

Comments: This route screams balance right from the get go!
The first bulge threw me, for being difficult to read during my onsight attempt, and then from being tired, so did the roof. However, the cruxes are well-protected, and the moves are there. Love the Eiger.
