Description:

Not to be confused with Retable Rock near the Needle's Eye. Start around the corner to the right of Lander Turkey Shoot. (p.1, 5.6, 180 feet). Grovel up a wide, right slanting crack to a stance. Run it out on easier knobs for a long way to a bolted anchor. (p. 2, 5.6, 150 feet). Climb cracks above the anchor to a knobby slab. At a steep headwall with vintage pitons make a ridiculous move into the chimney on your left (crux). Continue up the chimney to the top.

Descent Options:

Rappel Classic Crack with two ropes.

4 out of 5 stars Retable Route

A lot like a gunks route: moderate climbing, one wild move, and old pitons. Super fun.
