Description 

The narrow corridor heading due N, just before the Running Man flow. The climbs in this canyon, as with ALL ice climbs in Maple Canyon, are highly dependent on precipitation with an accompanying thaw/freeze cycle. No snow = no ice. Conditions can change exceedingly fast, and has been a major contributing factor of at least one climber's death in the Maple Canyon area.


Getting There 

Park at the pullout near the entrance to Maple Canyon, hike 0.8 mile up the road. The Box Canyon will be on your right.

Important Descent Information: Two 60m ropes are necessary for rapping from most Box Canyon climbs, unless one desires to leave gear behind or V-thread mid-rap.
