What a cool route! The most striking line on this section of cliff and most people's favorite. Climb up and left connecting the 3 scoops in the rock. Very bouldery. A kneebar helps to shake off some pump at the 3rd scoop before heading into the crux. From there, it's just staying cool and shaking when you can in the black streak to the top.


Just to the left of Baintree, 12c.


7 bolts, chains.

So classic and so unusual for Maple! Bouldery yet long...powerful yet technical...a fine line and hard for 12c IMHO! Worthwhile!! One of my favorites!

Incredible route. I couldn't find the kneebar at the 3rd scoop, despite several people telling me it was 'locker' and they were able to go no hands. I think it's 12c if you can get that kneebar, but closing in on 12d if you can't...

So fun. So sharp. Get your skin ready if you're pulling hard. Great route!
