  • Description 

    This is a great route for Table Rock. It has a long section of quality climbing to the anchors. A good bit of route finding and a technical sequence keep this interesting. Not to mention a sweet roof pull!

    Start just to the left of White Lightning on a slab. Move up to a short right facing corner. Step left onto the face and move straight up to a bolt at the bulge. Make some tricky moves left to another bolt at the base of the roof. Plug some gear before attempting to clip the bolt above the roof. Make the very difficult clip to the rusty bolt above the roof. Pull the wildly overhanging roof making use of what few holds it has to offer. Stand up and wander up the easy slab to a bolt and then to the anchors.


    Just to the left of White Lightning, look for the bolts at a bulge and roof.


    Single rack, tri-cams, nuts, a few 24" runners, and four bolts to a two bolt anchor. The NC Select guide suggests a #4 camalot, but the placement is around a lot of loose rock and is protected better once you step around the starting corner with some passive gear. Rap with a 60m.

    Did this route for the first time and was really impressed. It felt like a classic Ship Rock route. A must do if you like steep mixed climbing.
