Description

A great route, and one that actually holds the .12a rating.

Endurance is the name of the game; rest properly and you will send. The route stays fairly consistent the whole way; hold on.

Location

Finally sent last month. Clutch right knee before the big slopey cobble that seems to be the RP crux for most people. No move is hard, just sport climbing technique to keep the pump clock from counting down. One of my favorite 5.12a's ever. Jul 5, 2016

Great route and solid at the grade in my opinion. This route is more about open hand holds. They are jugs but open hand jugs. Feb 22, 2016

It has now been over 6 years since last visited Maple Canyon & redpointed this route in Oct. 2008. I didn't disagree with its original .12b rating and
that year I redpointed 78 routes between .12a & .13a. The hardest moves on 49 were only .11c but my god what a pump! True endurance climbing. Unlike most .12bs with multiple .12a cruxes or a real .12b crux, this climb is a jug
haul that overhangs 25 ft. in 80 ft. There are 10 protection bolts and the only great rest is on a stance below a final bulge at last bolt. Not a no hands rest but the feet are on a shelf. Definently harder that Lunchables or Zoaster Toaster. Jan 24, 2015

Rests galore! Super fun moves on the giant cobbles about halfway up. On par with other Maple 12a's, but pretty soft by most standards. Aug 2, 2012

Thought this route was technically easier than Zoaster, but perhaps a little more thuggy. Jun 3, 2012

I think that this one "holds the 12a grade" because it used to be 12b! But seriously, it is quite a bit harder than Lunchables, Groundwork, Afterglow, etc. Jul 26, 2011
