Description

Steep ice that mellows a bit in the middle then one last little steep bit to the chains on the right.

Location

In the Engagement Alcolve, about a hundred yards up the Left Hand Fork of Maple Canyon on the right. Follows the rock route of the same name.
One 60m rope gets you down with plenty of rope to spare.

Protection

Stubbies to medium sized screws. One could reach way to the right and clip a couple of bolts on an adjacent sport route. Traverse to the right about six feet to a set of anchors with rings. Or if it is thin at the top you can clip a set of chains immediately to the right of the ice (on 1/08/09 there was one chain exposed).
