Description:

Pretty much straight up the ridge to the large, sideways chimney - The Cherry Jam. Set your first belay right below the Cherry jam (200 feet). After the Cherry Jam, conitnue up and set a belay on the right side bushes - do not go up to the higher bushes as this leads you the wrong way. From the bushes, go right through some broken rock to a chimney/offwidth deal which leads to antoher bushy belay. From here, go up the crack and traverse out to the right as High as you can and set a belay. From here, easy climbing leads to the top.

Descent Options:

Hike towards Pima Canyon and look for a large gully system heading back down to the Ridge of Table Mt. Easy Scrambling and several raps will get you where you need to go.

5 out of 5 stars Hezbollah Training.....

We hiked in from the park - which was the wrong way - endured about 6 miles of bushwaking. Bivied below the ridge and cranked it the following day. Ran out of water, 100 degrees, ran out of pot, hiked out to the houses where some very nice people lets us drink from their water hose and gave us a lift back to my truck.
