Start in an alcove with a shallow corner on the left with a scratchy bush growing out of it. Clip the first bolt (just right of the bush), then figure out how to climb past or over the foliage without getting entangled and scratched. Please do not remove the shrub - it was there first, and it is possible (albeit inobvious) to climb past it without getting thrashed. Continue on up the arete and face above to a ledge on top. The anchors are on the wall above the ledge, and are easily accessible from the top.
Addendum: Beware, there is a block that shifts a half inch just below the 4th bolt.
Addendum: you can go up the crack right of the 1st bolt, and traverse at the 2nd bolt for an 8+.
Six bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings.

Fun route! The climbing seems to ease up (5.9) after the bush. Fun moves and solid stone make this pretty enjoyable.

While I was climbing up at Table on 2/22/02 a climber was injured on this climb after some blocks came loose as he was climbing. The blocks came off from the left of the arete near the second and third bolts. I believe that the climber was dropped while the belayer attempted to dodge the (large) falling debris. He was, luckily, wearing a helmet and did not suffer any life threatening injuries, a badly broken leg and various cuts were the only things evident at the scene. I don't think that the climb has been seriously altered, just a word to be careful and watch for the loose stuff.

Hmmm...I meant to say, 'Fun moves on really crappy, loose stone.' Another block lies in wait just left of the fourth bolt; resist the temptation to pull hard on this jugga.

Scott is right, that block (with 2 Xs on it) is just standing there, waiting to be trundled. I avoided it without difficulty. And, now with 6 bolts, you don't have to actually climb the crack to the Resident Bush.
