The valley is home to more than 30 separate climbing walls, all open to climbers at no charge, a $10 fee is charged per car for parking to offset maintenance costs.
Some important rules must be followed to ensure future access and enjoyment by all. A complete list can be found at muirvalley.org/tabs/#pills-1 , but the most important are listed below:
- All climbers must fill out a legal release form before climbing. muirvalley.org/waiver/ ;
- The parking lot described in the directions below is the only permitted parking. Do not park on private drives.
- No dogs are allowed in Muir Valley (nor left in your car in the parking lot.)
- No hammocks are allowed to be hung/used in Muir Valley.
When you arrive at the crag the first routes climb a super steep wall on Huecos but as you go around the corner to the right more routes appear these are less steep and more technical finally you get to First Fall the sweet crack that marks the end of The Sanctuary...
The sanctuary gets plenty of sun and some routes stay dry in the rain...Have Fun...
Take the North Trail behind the barn in the main parking lot. When the trail reaches the valley floor look straight across the road for a bridge with a sign marking the trailhead for several crags. Cross the bridge and make an immediate left and follow signs for the Sanctuary. At the top of the stairs make a right and you'll find yourself in the main amphitheater for Jesus Wept, Triple Sec, etc.
