|The slab below the big roof is interesting, especially for N Table, where slab climbing is relatively absent. The route is longer than most at Table, so I found it to be pretty enjoyable.|

|Contrived, but still fun. 10b or so if you follow the bolt line over the right side of the roof.|

|....New anchor and bolts added several years ago to make a much more enjoyable climb.|

|Also found the route to be a little contrived. Heel hooked over the roof just to make it a bit more interesting.|

|Not a bad route if you stick to the slabby stuff climbing directly over the bolts and then pull the roof without bailing out right. If you stay to the right of the route all the way, I would probably say about 5.7 or 5.8.|

The book calls this 10a / 10d. It states 10a is if the roof is avoided to the right and 10d if you pull the roof by way of the arete with no cheating to the right.
That's Table for ya, a lot of climbs are cheatable, you just gotta will yourself to stay on the line.
I found the thin slab/face moves to the left of the bolts (10bish) to be very pleasurable. I went around the roof to the right and scoped out the holds and then when I was being lowered from the anchors, I tr'd the roof by using the arete but not going any further right, then heel hooking and pulling the roof. 10d for sure! and fun! I shoulda went for it on the lead, but it's hard to read and the moves leading up to it are hard as well.
More fun moves after the roof.
Really good climb if the line is followed.
