Description

Slither up the appealing ice-filled chimney.  While the ice is not particularly steep, the climbing is made even easier through the use of the rock walls on either side.  After the initial 50' of climbing, the chimney system opens and turns to the right.  A 2-bolt anchor is found on the left wall where the ice phases into snow.

Worm Hunt sees no sun and seems to form after sufficient snow.  On the day I climbed this in late March, nearly every other ice route in Maple had melted out or collapsed.  This climb is situated at nearly 8000' in elevation, keeping the ice persisting into the late season.

Location

Hike way up the right fork and continue several minutes past the Pipe Dream.  Locate a tight gully on the left-hand wall after passing Haji Rock and a sign for the Birthday Corridor.  Easy to spot from the trail, which would likely be buried under many feet of snow if you seek to climb this.
