Description

This is a nice little crag with a good collection of moderate sport routes to choose from. Most of the routes are not overhanging and tend to be more vertical. The far end of the wall is host to a number of fun moderates ranging from 5.10a to 5.11a. Bruise Brothers is definitely worth checking out.

Getting There

From the Muir Valley parking area take the trail behind the barn down into the hollow. At the bottom of the hill head right, cross the creek, and follow the signs for Rebel Camp Hollow and then to the Bruise Brothers Wall.

Great place to climb on a rainy day! Many of the routes are short and unremarkable, but it beats getting rained out. Rat Stew (5.10a) is a must-do. Oct 27, 2008

Watch your belongings here. Too many people milling about, and many of them are new to the climbing world and as such have less respect, perhaps. My group was last to leave the crag, but we decided to go run some of the slab climbs way down to climbers right, and left most of our belongings up top. I was rewarded for my stupidity by having the one expensive article of clothing that I own stolen from the bench with my other things: A blue Arcteryx half zip pullover. Dec 2, 2017
