Stymingersfink on Golden Plum (WI5), taken on 1/20...

Private Property/Skin or Hike Approach MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Beautiful golden curtain of ice that flows from the west wall in a very narrow dog-leg section of the Upper Box. Catch it early for a glimpse of sunshine, otherwise it's shaded all day long. Resist the temptation to stem across to the other wall... though it's close there's no chance in hell you'll reach it. It's a good motivator to follow rule #1 however.

Location 

Upper Box Canyon, the first flow on the left about 100' past the Upper Box falls. The canyon zigs right for 20', this is the base.

Protection 

Screws. Two bolt anchor to climbers right, where the wall looms up at you again.

I think Golden Plum along with Maple Syrup might be visually the purtiest climbs in Maple. Its Golden, and, its a Plum!
