BETA PHOTO: The route.


The Maxx begins in a right-facing corner with a bolt that leads to a slab. Above the slab is an intimidating, 12 foot roof that is split by a beautiful crack. Boulder your way out the reachy roof to a hand jam at the lip. After turning the lip, climb the slabby splitter above to a 2 bolt anchor. Make sure to place a cam left of the lip in order to keep the rope out of the crack, I guarantee it will get stuck.


This route is at the top of the approach gully, uphill from the main area by ~100 yards.

Great route. Too bad it starts off of the slab as it gives you a little mental buzz. Ripped off the beginning underling. Does not make it any more difficult, just less secure to start. The crux is placing gear on lead. I found that a #3 at the top of the hand jam made me feel happy. Make sure you bring an extra #0.4 to put in a horizontal 3' left of the crack after turning the roof to keep the rope out of the hungry crack!
