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.
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.

It's a good motivator to follow rule #1 however....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
