Description 

A secluded cove off the middle fork that's chocked full of 5.9's

Getting There 

Walk up the middle fork trail, past the campsites, across the streambed, and past a small clearing. Looking to the walls to the right, you'll see a massive pine tree sticking out of a cove. This is where you want to aim for. The approach trail is about thirty paces past the clearing, and dips down into the stream bed. It exits the stream bed across from a pine tree with exposed roots, and then goes up the hill, hugging the left wall.

Slightly overhung jug haul. When I first came to Maple, I expected all the easy routes to be like this. Most of the beginner climbs turned out to be surprisingly thin and crimpy (I'm looking at you, Orangutan Wall). This is the antidote to that: big moves and large holds....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

If you're looking for seclusion in maple this is the place for you. The little traffic that the middle fork area gets, and the difficulty of the trail leading up to this area have seemed to keep a lot of people from climbing here. Since these routes are relatively new beware of loose rocks and make sure to wear helmets. With a little more traffic this area could be a fun, much less crowded alternative to the school room. I also counted 7 routes in the alcove (if you count bitch tits left and right as separate routes)so there are 2 more additional routes than what are listed here.
