Bouldery start then lets up some past the first 3 bolts. Then at the upper bulge it's a cruxy crimpfest. Well protected. A very long endurance route.
Located to the right of "When Cobbles Fly". Just around corner.
Bolts to Chains

Warmed up on this one and found the bouldery little section at the beginning to be pretty pumpy. For stronger creatures, this would pose no big deal as the next 60' or so are no harder than 10, but I was pretty gassed and didn't have the umpf to actually piece out the top. And like a lot of climbs at Maple, the top requires a little thought because it is thin and difficult to read. My personal opinion is that the crux lay in surmounting the bulge after powering through this long route (about 16 bolts).
