Climbing party on Maple Jones
|Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April MORE INFO >>>|
Excellent cobble climbing for the area, and reminds one of Maple.
Pitch #1: A cruxy, but well protected start climbs past holes, pockets, and solid protruding cobbles passing a smooth upper band to a three bolt belay. 5.9, 15-17m.
This is actually in a different canyon, which is located in a north south running canyon just west of the dry wall. I am sure that other climbers have named this west facing wall, but it is unknown to me. Other unknown routes have been established here on the steeper and longer and harder right side of the wall.
The parking is just past some shrubbery about 75m north of the frontage road and both it and the climbing offers some seclusion...more so than Dry Wall. From the parking and camping fire pit, walk 1 minute up the short west facing hillside to a blackish water streak of the left wall, it is the only route on the wall (until now) with glue in bolts.
The exact location and GPS for the route is 41° 0'6.16"N, 111°23'31.73"W
QDs for 6 black colored glue in bolts

The exact GPS Coordinates for Maple Jones using the WGS84 datum is N41°00'06.2" W111°23'31.8" This is the bottom of Maple Jones. The other coordinates in the beta are taken from Google Earth. The route is on the right wall looking up the canyon and is straight up the hill from where you cross the stream.

Visited area last night. Got on two of the harder routes right and bailed. This route is real fun. Note, it is the route farthest to the North (left). I counted 6 additional chains and bolt lines south (right) on the taller part of the cliff.
