|The Damascus Gate
Climb up and try not to get suckered out left. Make a kind of tricky clip before gaining a great rest stance. Head up and left and prepare for the thin crux. Once you pull the crux, pass the chains of Shunt Mouth, bust an undercling move and hold on until the finish.
This route shares the start of Shunt Mouth, 12a and heads right.
8 bolts, chains.

Super fun, classic Maple cobble pulling to two distinct cruxes. Both of which are pretty tame by maple standards- this one got dropped a letter grade in the new book, and thats probably accurate. Regardless, its a super fun route and should definitely be on everyone's ticklist!
