Coming from the main WAB trail take the right trail and look for 3 short trad lines and one sport line close together. This is the right of the three cracks. Start in a wide, left-facing dihedral that quickly pinches down. Make your way up the arching crack to the shared anchors of Maximus. Anchors will be added soon.Please do not take the cam that's pretending to be the anchor.

Fun route but could really use bolted anchors. Climbing up through the brush and tree limbs to back up the tatty webbing tied around the tree was the worst part of the climb
