Description

Excellent moderate sport routes that get excellent early morning shade and afternoon shade as well. Good rock quality with routes a bit longer by Maple standards

Getting There

Left Hand Fork in Maple Canyon: Pass the Petroglyph Wall on your right (with the chain-link fence covering the actual petroglyphs), The Pipeline on your left, Engagement Alcove on your right, go around a corner, under a log that lies across the trail and the streambed, then cross the streambed and find the long routes facing east.

The location indicated for this crag on the App is not right. We searched for a long time (as many climbers did). It shows Orangutan wall to be further down the trail, but it truly is only a few hundred feet from the bridge. Once you see Pipeline wall (the short overhanging routes that look like a half pipe on your left), you're pretty much there. Orangutan is the next wall on your right. The landing is very open and has clearly seen a lot of climbers. The climbs there are phenomenal!! Apr 18, 2017
The 5.7-5.9 climbs are great. An excellent introduction to Maple. Note that on 11/6/2012 we encountered 4 spinning bolts, one anchor with only one chain (no rap ring or quick link on other bolt) and one anchor with a heavily worn bottom link. Be careful. Also, we (and the other party there that day) found Don't Touch the Monkey to not only be the best route but also perhaps the easiest. Physically a bit more demanding but far more straightforward.

There are chains now at the tops of most of the orangutan walls now. So rapelling is no longer necessary on at least two of them that I saw and climbed. Jul 1, 2008

Walked right past it on my first visit to Maple today. It is truly only a few hundred yards up canyon from the bridge that begins the Left Fork trail. There is currently a large fallen tree hovering over the trail; look right and where the streambed touches the low angle wall, you're looking at the Pink Bolts. Note that the routes do not appear as long as they really are from the trail, in part because the start of many of these are low angle ramps for 25 feet. May 30, 2008
