Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 Details
Road 700B is closed to vehicular traffic Details
It appears the USFS has 'semi-permanently' closed off Road 700b to vehicular traffic as of early 2014. That doesn't mean you can't hike the existing road(s) into the formation.
DescriptionThis is a straightforward and fairy well-protected chimney that's more fun than it looks and tops out on the summit of The Maze. There are good cracks inside the chimney for protection as well as a bomber #2 horizontal on the left partway up. Be forewarned: we had to tiptoe through some bird crap below an old abandoned nest halfway up the route.
To descend from the top, scramble down to the bolted anchor to climber's right of the chimney. This is the top anchor for Flake Toprope, an unprotected 10d slab problem.
