Private Property/Skin or Hike Approach MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The name comes from the golden maple-brown color this flow typically sports. Climbing a steep cauliflowered slab brings one to one of the more amazing pillars nestled in this right-facing corner, surrounded by Maple's cobbles.

Location 

This route is impossible to miss. Hike up the canyon, through the cave and over the boulder. Look left.

Protection 

Screws, some smallish rock gear may be found adjacent to the climb.
