Unmistakable, Merry Maids crops up about 200 feet from the ice cave and fires up the corner of a colorful, left-facing dihedral. This rock is still a little sharp, but it has been getting more friendly with use. Big blocks lead to an interesting stemming problem that will dump you off the corner at three quarters height. Negotiate a small bulge just below the anchor. Good warm-up, good sun, and acceptable but not outstanding rock.
A dozen draws and a rope.

This route is in desperate need of bolt replacement. Multiple bolts wiggling in holes, loose nuts, etc. Easy route, but scary protection currently.

All of the lead bolts got replaced during the Rifle Cleanup 2010 with fat stainless hardware courtesy of the ASCA.
