Working through the crux

Description 

A little atypical for Maple in that it is not really all that pumpy.

Start out with some long moves off the ground to a small roof. Get your game face on because the next 20-25 feet is the meat of the route. Move up on sidepulls and cool pockets past a nice pinch on your way to a straight down pulling hold just below the obvious 1 foot roof. make a couple more difficult move over the roof to the spike that marks the end of the difficulties. While there are other moves up above that might make you stop to think there are also numerous great rests and the wall is less steep.

One you reach the anchors, if you are feeling good consider trying the extension Super Spunk.


Location 

First route to the right of Dry Times. Find the big dihedral, Dry Times, out left of the main cave. This is the first route right of the dihedral and arete.


Protection 

Many bolts to chains

The bottom is pretty continuous, but straightforward. The undercling holds at the roof suck, but if you can just bust through there and get to the horn the hard climbing is all over. There is a huge sidepull up and left of the roof, before you move back right to the horn. Then just fight the pump on 5.9/5.10 climbing to the finish.
