Opening Day 12a, Cragganzenden. 5 bolts to chain...


It seems like all through the spring the weather is PERFECT for Maple climbing and we have the place all to ourselves. Then BOOM, its May 1st and like magic the campground is full and all the crowds arrive. Thus the name, Opening Day.

Steep and tricky sequences past 5 bolts to chains. A bit short, but this route packs it in. We debated an 11d rating. What do you think?


Starts on the blunt arete that is first encountered when approaching Cragganzenden.


5 bolts, chains with steel biners. Bolted for a stick clip, please do!
