Just before the crux of Maker's Mark.

Another excellent line in the Bierstadt Area, Maker's Mark climbs the hanging arete/scoop just north of Ben's Arete.
Begin with a stand start on your choice of ~4 water-sculpted flakes & dishes. Swing your feet onto the belly of the prow, and move right to a sweet, sculpted pinch. From here, work up & slightly left, into the shallow right-facing dihedral. Mantle up on insecure slopers, eventually reaching a sinker hueco.
About 20 yds south of The Ladder. This line climbs the first (northern-most) of two adjacent hanging aretes.
Several pads & an attentive spot. There is a 2-foot gully in the landing area, so be aware.
