Topped out on "Meet the Buddha". I dare...


Typical Maple Rock. Great warm up in the morning keeping shade early. Great 9 and some incredible 10's

Getting There 

Park at the bathroom and follow the trail leading to the pipe dream cave. About 400 yards off the road on the right will be the Zen Garden.

Correct me if any of this information is wrong. I did it to the best of my knowledge.

Great area. I was definitely on a "higher plane" after starting on Zen Fen and working my way left, ending with Zen master. The grade progression through these 3 climbs is Maple Canyon perfection! Big and beautiful trees keep things partially shaded in the afternoon.

Note: "Zen Master" now has separate anchors from "Meet the Buddha" (side by side, but not shared).
