Description

There is a little more suspect rock on The Maize than on the other three-star routes at The Millstone, but I wager there isn'’t a route on the crag that has more continuously difficult and technical climbing. Moonwalk comes close, but the crux section of that route is much shorter. Particularly if it isn'’t chalked up, expect a pumpy brain teaser from the time you leave the second bolt to the jug below the fifth bolt. Kudos to the Haze and the other strong-armed lads for envisioning this line and the judicious placement of the bolts --– enough to be safe but sufficiently far apart to grab your attention. The fourth bolt is a spinner and can be difficult to clip.

Location

Branches left from the second bolt of Stone Ground.

Protection

Draws. Bolts rigged for lowering on top (same anchor as for Stone Ground).
