Description 

This climb starts between two small trees and has a unique cobble shaped like The Rolling Stones tongue near the 4th bolt.
This one's all about power and if you can send V4, it should be no problemo.
More like a campus problem than a climb, speed and finger strength are paramount.
If this thing seems hard, there's a kneelock near the 2nd bolt that tames things down a little.


Location 

The rightmost climb on this wall of three routes.


Protection 

4 bolts and chains.

This was my first bolted climb in Maple around 1994.

In between the first time I tried this route in the spring and today two holds broke off, including the one right after the "tongue"... I would definitely say this thing is full on 12b now
