Comments: Actually, I was thinking about this. "Whole Lotta Sober" is the line _just_ left of this line. It is still trad and pulls through the weakeness in the roof. The crux is pulling onto the blank-ish face above the hang. Good pro at the crux. "First Blood" pulls the roof further left of this.

This line was bolted after Whole Lotta Sober and is yet to be named. I have the FA on both lines, and have not thought of a name yet. Tod's son did the SA. It's definitely 5.7 and sports a giant "surpr... more >>

Comments: This climb was fitted with bolts summer of 2010. FA Chris Perkins. Indeed it can be lead via trad, but the end of the climb is pretty run out after pulling the roof, and the wall in general needed more beginner routes.

Comments: The bolt is missing, but if you bring a 1/2 inch long 3/8ths bolt and a hanger you can place it and then do the route. It's a great lead. Be sure to remove your bolt when you are done with it or the route may suffer some vandalism from the person who put the bolt in in the first place (wonder who that is).

Comments: The route is "passing the baton" There's only 12 bolts in the route's 45 feet. Watch out for the run outs!

Comments: I could be wrong, but I do not remember seeing a piton when I climbed this. Nevertheless, it protected well.

Comments: This climb is not to be missed. Interesting climbing the whole way, and while the bolted crack probably detracts from the climb, most people would just skip it rather than bring one piece of gear, so it seems justified. Interesting moves up top with insecure feet on steep terrain, but it's definitely all there.

Comments: I feel like the start is more like 5.7, and the slab above more like 5.4. The only thing that makes the start tough is that you can't really see your feet, but there are huge footholds through that section.

Comments: The Tyrol for this crag has but one line on it presently. I plan to put in a new static line for this popular crag on Thursday, June 3rd, 2010.

Comments: The length of this climb combined with interesting flake pulls at the bottom and an exposed roof near the end make this my favorite 5.10 at Table.

Actually no, it's terrible, must be avoided. Don't even t/h/i/n/k a/b/o/u/t/, I mean bother with this one. Spread your chalk covered, slimy sunblock covered hands elsewhere.

Comments: Nice line. Bottom climbs like a being in a giant's house and going up the stairs. Set of cams to 3" is all you really need, Save the bigger placements for towards the top.

First lead? Watch the ankle-rope action once you are clipped.

Comments: Thought provoking clips on lower angle climb. Holds are small, some sloping, but they are all there. 3 Glu-in bolts give the climber confidence to peek over the top, resulting in a beautiful view of the Pacific. Long distances between clips result in missed-clip groundfalls, so It is best to have your whits about you before attempting this climb.

Comments: I disagree with the authors assessment of gear at the crux. I saw at least 2 cam placements for pulling the crux roofs, which aren't all that bad anyway. Just watch for loose rock while approaching the roofs.
You *can* get some gear in the puzzle pieces, but the rock there is questionable at best, so be solid in the grade if you are looking to lead it.

Pucker up if you are solo and onsight on this route tho, the roof pulls are cryptic, the hands are a bit smeary on the second, but if you get ... more >>

Comments: Well worth the long approach. Look for a small cairn just past the Zinn overlook on the left. This is a good crag on those hot days. Parts of it are shaded most of the day, and it is a few thousand feet up above the parking lot (providing some alittudinal relief from the heat).
