This is a high quality route with your typical weird Table Rock style of climbing. It is by far my personal favorite route at Table Rock, and would get more traffic if it were at a different cliff. There are lots of sidepulls and weird movements involved, as well as a pretty clever rest if you can find it. It is a safe but intimidating route.
P-1 Climb the "MM" dihedral about 30' up to a large stopper and a traverse right. Move out right then up the sparsly protected face (only 5.7)on a couple of RP's to the small belay ledge (small/medium gear)65'.
P-2 Clip bolt above the roof, and crank up and right, then back left to a good stance below the funky corner features (5.10+). Climb this section past gear and 4 more bolts (cryptic 5.11), through a couple of bulges to a good short crack near the top (Bomber # 2 camelot here). Step up and right (past another good #2 or #3 camelot) and to a short easy slab. Rap from a 2 bolt anchor with either 2 ropes (130'), or one rope twice using the P-1 bolts of "SP".
Climbs the funky looking wall out right of pitch 2 of "Mourning Maiden".
Note: There is an old unfinished line between this and Solar Plexus with a bolt and 2 pins on it. Don't go that way (P-2).
Standard rack. Small to medium cams for the belay.

When did this route (and Solar Plexus) go up? I've looked at that wall for a long time but always thought the rock was crap. Much rock of that color on TR that is bad, in my experience. Awesome that you had the nerve to get up there and find out that it's good. Good on you!

Yeah, what Coz said. Sooner or later I'll get back there and enjoy the work y'all did getting those in.
