Route photo for Canned Beaver; 5.7 Maple Canyon


Canned Beaver is all about getting past the first three bolts and then enjoying a nice leisurely swim up to the anchors. Jason has extended this route and instead of only three bolts, it now climbs to the top of the formation as well as the two routes that flank both its left and right sides.
If climbing 5.7, is near your limit then stick clip the first bolt, as getting to it is the crux. Small finger pockets and cobbles are the name of the game here.
If climbing 5.7 is beyond your limit, then climb Porcupine Mush to the left and lean over and set up a toprope.
If climbing 5.7 is simple, then warm-up on this one and then hop on Armadillo Waffles to the right as it's one of Maple's harder 5.8's.

Canned Beaver is the fourth route from the left at the Road Kill Wall.


8 bolts plus anchors.

Surprisingly fun route for the grade; if only it were longer!

The crux off the deck is harder than 5.7. What 5.7 requires a steep move on a 2 finger pocket with badish feet?
