Description:

5.1 in the older guidebook, which is pretty accurate. 3rd to 4th class to the first big ledge, then bucket haul to the Eye, for the belay. Pretty good protection for most of the route (exception maybe being the very top 10 feet up the shallow chimney finish). Nice route to do in your approach shoes. Very very fun!

4 out of 5 stars Maynard-Tree - THE EYE

Mom's First Rappel ever. Emmy (6) & Reese (8) went right up it. Too easy for me & dad, but fun to have everyone climbing as a family.
Lyle, Cole & Tyler went too. Good times.

5 out of 5 stars what a fun time!

Although very easy, this was a super fun climb and well worth the effort. Looks somewhat improbable as you stand beneath it. The holds and pro are all there. Lots and lots of fun.
