Feeding Frenzy takes the prominent buttress with a big, left-facing dihedral at its top. Slab up for a few clips and make a sneaky, thin series of moves to get established in the corner (5.11d). Some people have done this entirely on the face, but they probably have mutant feet. Chase the corner and a small overlap up to the anchor for about 5.10c. The stone on this route is quite good.
8 draws, something for the anchor, and a rope.

One of the first routes I ever trusted to pull a bit via monos (ok stacked two fingers on one of 'em). Intricate thin and fun sequence.

This is a really great route. Although the first bolt is pretty far off the ground for a place like Table, the moves to it seemed about 5.9 at the hardest. (I don't rate climbs very well, but that's how I remember it a week later). The crux, which is several bolts up, is very well protected. Enjoy!

The hangers were replaced in 12/06, and an additional lower bolt was added to enable a start that stays out of the crack.

The FA was February 1991 and was named after the area became popular leading to a lot of climbers and people with drills.

Definitely a nice climb, too bad more people don't seem to try Feeding Frenzy as much as MBA, IMO it's a much more enjoyable climb. Certainly not a one move climb.

LOOSE BLOCK!! The final 10 feet of this climb use a pillar formation that is moving. After you come out of the corner, there is a hand-sized crack; the rock that makes up the right side of this crack and the arete is loose at the top and you gain the top of this feature to clip the anchors. Does anyone have ideas on how to address this?

I didn't find anything that was dangerously loose, that you have to yard on -- unless something useful has since broken off. Maybe it has become harder than 11d. Seems harder than 11d to me; I struggled, even after yarding on the crux bolt and then standing on it.
