Description [Suggest Change]

Dutch Maiden packs a lot of pump into a short route, saving up a final crux for the last move to the anchors.

Climb crimpy holds and occasional positive horizontals past three bolts to the top.

Location [Suggest Change]

Red Light District; starts on a ledge above the trail about 10' left of Mammplitude.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Three bolts; bolted anchors.

Does anyone know if a hold has been knocked off anywhere on the route? The space between the fist and second bolt is incredibly bare for a the grade, I climb typically climb 5.10 and I couldn't make it up to the second bolt without a few nasty whippers.

But, it could just be that the climbing isn't suited to my personal strengths on the rock, but man, it was stiff for the grade. Aug 30, 2010

I wondered if a hold hadnt broken between the third bolt and the anchors (or maybe it was 2nd to third bolt). Anybody have beta on the moves to the anchors? Also wasnt sure which way to go...Left or Right to get to the final pocket, as the face straight up, was straight up bald. Didnt think the route wasnt very natural based on the bolt placement. I too regularly climb 10s and this was no 10a. 10b minimum. Couple of fun moves at the bottom, but dont see why this is a highly rated route... at least under the current conditions. Dec 21, 2010

Did this one in June, lots of fun! The crux for me was the last move to the chains, but I didn't see the jug hold above the anchors either. There is a cool expansion move on crimpy holds between the second and third bolts (or 3rd and 4th?). Either way, cool route. Aug 15, 2011

I was told that a hold broke off near the top making this climb around the 10b range. Comparing Dutch Maiden to Mammplitude (just right of it) the ratings should be reversed in my opinion.

Rothman - I always go right at the last bolt to reach the anchors. Apr 23, 2012

I agree with Marlin the route directly to the right while thin at the bottom gets progressively better holds to the top while Dutch Maiden at the top while fighting the pump gets extremely thin. Dutch Maiden 10b Mammplitude 10a? May 15, 2012

This route is missing the 3rd bolt. If you were to fall near the anchors you would deck out. Jul 1, 2013
Bring a sliding nut or removable hanger for the third bolt, the bolt and nut are there but the hanger is missing as of 5/14/16 May 15, 2016
As of 10/18/2016, the third bolt on Dutch Maiden is still missing a hanger. Oct 18, 2016
Someone replaced the missing 3rd hanger with the 1st hanger. You climb half the route before the first clip now Nov 13, 2017
