Description 

This is a great little climb that mixes up some crack climbing with face climbing. It comes up under a roof to make an exciting conclusion.

Also, I suggest moving to the left crack below the roof earlier rather than later. Going out the roof is more like 5.9, with some fun-but-tricky moves to surmount. 5.8 is fair for the crack that goes just right of the roof.

The direct start is about a V2 problem. It involves liebacking the sloping or flared crack then highstepping to gain the thin, slopey rail.

The photo for the route shows a guy moving from the left side. However, there is a challenging and fun start starting off to the right. It DEFINITELY feels harder than 5.8, and its a reach clipping the bolt, so you might think about a spotter.

Direct start is probably 10 to 10+ depending on height, IMHO.

Typical Table Mtn. short route fun. The direct start is most certainly reachy, but more fun and aesthetic than starting on the left. I would guess it would push the grade to 10-.

This is a fun route and isn't a bad option when the crags are crowded since you can climb parts of this route many ways. You can do a direct start, left start, body chimney start, etc. I think I climbed it four different times and ways before moving on to the climb next to it.

I think it's 4-bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Very cool to try to go straight up under the roof. Definitely some seepage while I was on it. Don't know if it's always like that.

Direct start recommended. Pushes it up to 10. Then hit the roof direct as well.
