Table Mountain is the remains of a 9 million year old lava flow that originated near Dardanelles Cone, approximately 60 miles to the east near Sonora Pass. These lavas flowed down the ancestral bed of the Stanislaus River, solidified into hard igneous rock (Latite), and in the intervening period the surrounding softer rocks were eroded away, leaving Table Mountain standing up above the surrounding area. It is one of the longest and best-preserved "inverted valleys" in the world.
The resulting cliffs offer steep, generally positive climbing on blocky (and occasionally columnar) bullet-hard rock.
The climbing areas are located beside highway 108 in the vicinity of Jamestown CA - check the individual crag pages for precise access instructions.
