Near the top of the route showing the chains just ...


This route is in the cluster of bolted routes a few hundred feet up the corridor. As of when I climbed it, it was the 5th bolted route from the left in the upper section of Maple Corridor. Mostly big holds (with a couple of surprising slopers!) climb through 4 bolts to a drop in open shut anchor.


4 bolts, open shuts at the top

this is not a 10b sorry, it just feels more like a 5.9 maybe an easy 10a.

I have to agree, though a fun route, I feel that it is a little over rated and that 5.9 would be closer to the mark.

+1 on the soft 10b. 10a at most

I'm with the other posters, there's no way I could onsight a 10b. Feels like 5.9+ compared to the rest of the climbs in the corridor.
