  <header name="Table Mountain" id="1" introacknowledgement="TableBy MountainNick is quite an extensive, 25 to 50 metre high, south west facing dolerite cliff, at 1000 metres, to the north of Bothwell. The cliff is visible to the west when driving up the Midlands Highway.Hancock" rock="Dolerite" walk="1 hour bike/walk" access="Access by driving north from Bothwell for about 19 km on the Interlaken Road, and parking at a locked gate on the right (GR 077214), 2km after the last house (Largo). Its best to bike to the crag as its about 7km. Follow logging roads north east, turning left at the first gate, then veer left then right, then left twice more to reach a major logging road. Follow this north then veer right round Hut Run Hill, on a rougher track until you see the cliff. Join another major road, leave the bikes and walk up a steep 4WD track to below the centre of the cliffs. From here traverse right over scree to the right side of the cliff where two bolted climbs will be found (GDA 0511524,5323856). It takes about an hour to get to the cliff, but its an easy 10 minute walk and 15 minute roll back to the car." name="Table Mountain" walk="1 hour bike/walk" rock="Dolerite" acknowledgement="By Nick Hancock"&lt;br/&gt;This access appears to cross private land owned by John Webb at Lyell Marshes. Deer shooting occurs between 1st March and 30th June and it would be unwise to access the cliff during this period." intro="Table Mountain is quite an extensive, 25 to 50 metre high, south west facing dolerite cliff, at 1000 metres, to the north of Bothwell.

The final holds on this route have broken, so now its best to climb up left over the final rooflet, instead of up the shallow groove. Bolts are still clipable this way.</climb>
