Dan Dewell on "East-side Poseurs" in the Rock
This route is immediately upon entering the Rock Maze in the South Central Area, far right on the Golden Wall. It starts on a horizontal crack that is about 4 inches wide. Put the right hand in here. Reach up with left to a sloper. Bring the right hand into a cool pocket then left hand up to the top.
A group of us did this a while ago, and after asking around, I still have yet to find out who did the FA on this line. The day I did it I cleaned the hell out of the line. I had never seen chalk on it, but one person says it has been done before, but he isn't sure by whom. It's one of the coolest problems in the Rock Maze, and the line is very inviting, so I would guess it has been done before.
And although it looks as if the fall would be treacherous, the landing is one of the better in the Maze. It is a bit high, so use a pad.

Thanks for the kind words, anonymous. Ah, yes, I do recall doing this in the mid '90s. I agree, Dan, not a bad little problem. Did I get the FA? Who knows!
