Description Suggest change

Myth Rock is the steep crag above the parking shoulder for Avalon. It is on the north side of the highway directly across from the Tyrolean traverse for Avalon. The definitive feature of the crag is a huge, open book dihedral ascended by the route Excalibur. The rock is mostly very solid, golden granite. The routes are mostly sport with a couple of cracks thrown in for good measure. Don't worry about the noise of cars and Harleys. As soon as you are off the ground you will only hear Boulder Creek and the turning of your soul.
