DescriptionLong overhanging wall with routes graded well into the 5.12 to 5.13 range.
Some parts are chossy or loose (looking at the bottom of the cliff you will understand), but the classics are very solid.
Most draws are fixed with metal cables.
Some very high quality climbing in my opinion. Better be ready for dynamic climbing, the holds are sometimes far apart.
Muir Valley access Details
Muir Valley is owned by Rick Weber, please respect the area. We are very fortunate to be allowed into the valley. Follow the trails, don't shortcut, use the bathrooms in the parking lot. don't leave ANYTHING behind (except maybe your skin and ego)
Getting ThereNewer area of Muir Valley. Follow the directions for Weber Hollow until you see some signs leading to MN SURF (Midnight Surf).
As far as I know there are 2 ways to get there. The first path shares destination with the Boneyard and is quite long and tiring. second path is just passed the Solarium and climbs a flight of stairs to the bottom of the crag. Much easier.
