|A very good route that gradually runs from tight hands to fist. I have relatively small hands so I was doing hand stacks at the top. The gear can run from #1 camalot to #3.5 or #4 camalot. As of 5-4-2003 the anchor slings should be replaced as they are a bit of a rats nest - unfortunately I didn't have my usual load of spare webbing.|

|For gear, I placed a .75 camalot off the ground, 2 #1s, 2 #2s, 2 #3s, 2 #3.5s , and the top can take a #4 if you want to drag it along. Calling this the easiest lead on Maverick may hold true if you have big hands. But since I have small hands, the whole second half of this climb was fists and stacks. Not real easy for me, but one hell of a work out.|

Fun, interesting climb...that starts thin hands (#1 camalot) and widens to hands...and then fists (take the #4 camalot). It does offer a nice rest where it changes corners, so I would call it 10a, but I was following on TR. Certainly not harder than 10b.
A good climb if you don't have more than 3 cams of a given size.
NOTE: I replaced the anchor slings on 3/22/09. New slings and 3 oval biners. HOWEVER: the 2 bolts are slightly old 3/8", with loose hangers, a third bolt would be nice.

|Frances Fierst's gear recommendation is spot on. I took more #3's since I don't have #3.5's. Took a #4 as well. Glad to have had it. Mark's anchor is holding up just fine, but the bolts need to be replaced. The left bolt was loose and sticking out of the rock about 1/4". Both bolts are rusty.|

|Really fun moves right off the deck--and the ledges to the left make it really fun and stress free. The real challenge is at the widest part of the crack near the top--good technique will get you through! Be prepared to do some hand stacks and fist jams. Also, awesome location on the wall.|

|On 4/29/15 we climbed this thing and noticed he left anchor bolt is loose. You can wiggle it with your fingers. Yikes.|
