Bottom of Amplification. Follows the small seam.
A pure endurance climb with no real cruxes, Amplification follows a small seam to the top of the wall.
A fun boulder problem gets things going. Then pull into a large corner and weave left and right between decent holds until you are forced to leave the corner. Follow a crack making slightly harder moves for another 30 feet until you get a rest below the steep final headwall. Luckily, the holds improve, so just manage your pump to the top.
This is probably the best 5.13 journey route at Maple. Like most routes at The Hot Zone, this route is still cleaning up. Otherwise, this would definitely get four stars.
On the right flank of The Hot Zone. Look for an obvious seam/corner system.
Lots of bolts. The bolted anchors are equipped with chains.
