Description 

Table Manners starts on the blank face just right of Brain Cloud Arete and Shadow of a Hangdog. I can almost always find the good in a climb, and while this has some, Table Manners struck me as highly contrived. A bolted face is not really climbed, but the very pro-able crack to the right is climbed. This is followed by a highly contrived finger traverse that steps left, picks up a bolt, and steps back right to the continuation of the trad corner. The roof above is bolted for an apparent direct ascent, but the climbing in fact takes off in a very pro-able crack to the left. This whole route can be done trad following the natural features of the rock. I'm sorry to say that it was not impressive.

Protection 

Bring 7 or 8 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
