I thought this was a better climb, and warm-up, than the .11 to the left, blind in the water.

Bouldery start, very enjoyable warm-up for the harder routes on the wall. I agree with the above post, it's better than the (similar) route just to its left.

Awesome warm up! Unfortunately (as with a lot of climbs at Maple) I got suckered left at the top when I should have gone right. Probably pretty obvious to the non-trundler...

Great climb! Long and pumpy feel to it after surmounting the lower bouldery moves. Awesome body movements possible on this route.
