Description:

Start the same as Blood, Sweat, and Tears but stay in the dihedral at the beginning. After the dihedral follow an obvious bolted line that looks like a path surrounded by lichen going up the face. Really fun face climbing!

4 out of 5 stars ascent note

backed off after 2nd bolt- a combination of jitters, hot temps, and a fair runout between bolt 2 and 3

Great climbing.

4 out of 5 stars Woops

This was my first time to Table Rock proper; my partner and I were looking for Jim Dandy to give him a relaxed first multi-pitch experience. I bumbled on this climb, thinking it looked pretty easy from the bottom - we ended up with an exciting onsight and a sweet routefinding experience, linking the top of Honeymoon to the third pitch of Rip Van Winkle and the fourth pitch of Hidden Crack.

4 out of 5 stars Gotta Love Slab

Thought this route was a blast. The slab section was exciting, but very well protected. Don't get on this if you don't like slab. I believe it is a solid 5.8, just have to find the good crimpers and mounds for feet.

3 out of 5 stars It's Obvious When It's Over

Fun and sweet crack climbing, then turns into face. A little scary but good opportunity to work on balance.
