Yes, its a bit easy. Yes, its juggy. But even easy juggy routes can be amazing and Lucy's Perch is worthy of many stars! 15 bolts of fun holds and great exposure. The start is a little steeper and great holds abound. The middle has cool positioning up what feels like an arete. The finish is just plain fun scrambling. Be sure to soak in the fantastic views from the anchors.

This route is tall... a 70m with stretch might not get you completely to the ground depending on how long your 70m is. If your rope isn't long enough, you can easily lower to the anchors of the route to the right (at 2/3 height), then do a 2nd lower the remaining 80' while still swinging over to clean the draws. You can also lower directly down to the anchors on Toscano (the route to the left) and then do a second lower (but you can't clean the draws on Lucy from the Toscano anchors). If you want to toprope and you have a shorter rope, treat it like a multipitch and belay from above.

Gets sun and is good for spring, fall, and cool mornings.


Starts in the perch at the top of the trail. Just right of the crack. From the base, you can only see the first 1/3 of the route.


15 bolts, chains with steel biners. 71m. Be careful lowering off!

Might just become one of those all time "classic cruiser cobble romps" of Maple...decent steeper climbing down low turns into a long scramble up a rib with solid cobbles throughout the entire climb. If you're lookin' for some long, fun clamberin' on a rest day don't miss this one! Jun 10, 2017

We tried to find this yesterday. Could not find the start. We found bolts going up a crag but there were only four and then nothing. Would really like to do this but need much better description to find start. May 31, 2018
A 60m left us about 30 feet shy. We were right around the anchors to the 5.10 to the left. I should have read the description. Jun 9, 2018

We had no trouble finding this route using the overview map posted on the Cragganzenden page. There are several alternate trails leading away from Zen Garden - I believe we took the middle trail, and it is just a short walk to get you there. These folks did an amazing amount of work on the routes and on the trail to get up there. We really enjoyed the climbing is this area - so thanks for all of your work! We took our long rope and had fun climbing this route. It is not hard climbing, but it is great for getting used to the rock here and a great view at the top. Jun 15, 2018

Great rock on this one, nicely bolted and good views from the top. Didn't get on any of the others in this zone but impressed with all the work that went into it, thank you! Jun 30, 2018
