Description

Stick clipping the first bolt is a good idea considering the position, if you blow the first move you'll likely take you and your partner for a ride down the talus. Easy climbing on perfect pockets for the first few bolts. At some point, the pockets run out and you must crimp and side pull your way to the finish, using small feet and finding some good stems. A worthy route, but perhaps not quite as good as some of the similar grades on the South Facing wall. If located in another area at AF, it may deserve more stars!

Location

As you head up the approach trail, look for the obvious white cave like area about 15 ft above the trail. There are several route that start from this platform. Maritime is the rightmost line.

Protection

9 bolts?, Anchors.
