Maid in the Shade, like the name suggests, starts deep in the shaded chimney behind Spring Fever. Highly varied route with some chimney, face, and arete climbing.
Behind Spring Fever in the "eastern segment." Scramble to the back of the chimney and look for the bolts leading up through a gap.
15 bolts, rap hangers

this is an awesome route! there are problems with rope drag and communication with your belayer after exiting the chimney depending on where you go from there. once i was out i decided to go right because i could see the top anchor and knew i had enough draws to make it there. upon reaching the anchor I discovered the 2 cold shuts were completely loose and i had to resort to raping from a tree atop the cliff. my advice, if you want to top out on this climb go left after the chimney, there are two solid bolts for the anchor on this side, also bring a 70M rope. super fun climb and awesome view from the top! great climb on a sunny day!
