Pulls through 3 bolts of semi-chossy rock to a small ledge system. Hard pulls on crimps and really slopy slopers to a left leaning dihedral. Shake here and then the climb finishes in a crack requiring technique. Consensus needed on grade.

This route was bolted by B. Boyle.

This one has cleaned up pretty well. It is still a little fragile if your feet stray and bump any unused stuff. Great sustained climbing, not a jug haul. Requires good technical movement to make some of the poor holds useful.

This is a great climb with lots of fun movement, although the beginning is still dirty. The climbing is more technical than many of the enduro jug hauls in the area, but still fairly straight forward. I would not say that the route requires much technique. It would probably go at 12c if graded to many other places, but 12d sounds fair for Maple.

I am not surprised this might be 12c now. When Robert and I sent it, it took some time to find the holds and it was pretty chossy, but Maple climbs get easier 95% of the time - holds get more solid, bigger from brushing, ticks, chalk... etc.
