DescriptionThe Compound is a steep, North facing crag with about 20 routes between 5.11 and 5.14.
Since the cave has a large shelf at half height most of the routes stop at about 60 feet. The routes are the perfect middle ground between the intensely bouldery stuff found in Box Canyon, and the mega pumpy endurance fests at the Pipe Dream.
Like most areas at Maple, this area is still cleaning up, so don't stand below people when they are climbing.
Getting ThereIf you don't have a 4 wheel drive car, park at the top of the groomed Canyon Road near the Right Fork trail and continue up the semi-steep, rough Canyon Road another 15 minutes until you reach a sharp left and then a sharp right turn. After the right turn you will see an obvious trail on your left that leads up a dirt slope. Follow this trail for 5 minutes to the base of the Compound. If you have a 4 wheel drive car, you can drive all the way to the small trail that cuts off the main road.
This road has very little shade. So be ready to suffer in the sun if you visit in the Summer.
