Table Mountain, Southeast Couloir. In early July, 1980, Jack Tackle and I climbed the prominent couloir on the south side of Table Mountain. Above the snow in the lower portion it was a fairly sustained climb on good rock for about 600 feet. The move past a large chockstone on the third lead was the crux of the climb. Running water and slippery holds added to the difficulty. The fifth lead began on snow in the upper part of the couloir which we followed for perhaps 100 feet. Then, moving right, we climbed easy rock upwards to a drop-off. There we traversed left several hundred feet and went up to the large summit plateau. (II, F9.)
