Description [Suggest Change]

Persepolis is a new crag in Muir Valley, that currently features only five routes, but offers amazing beauty and refreshing solitude. There is plenty of rock & shade in the north-facing cirque, and surely this combination will ensure many new lines in the future. Its likely that most of them will be hard, as the rock here tends to be rather slopey & less featured than nearby cliffs. Even if you aren't interested in trying any of these, anyone climbing at this end of the valley ought to atleast hike through this picturesque area to get a respit from the surrounding crowds.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

The nearest published crag to Persepolis is "The Boneyard". Follow directions to that crag, by hiking into the Muir Valley, heading west, and following the signed trail on the left towards The Boneyard. Just before the cliff is reached, you will come to a trail junction with a sign pointing right to The Boneyard. Follow the trail to the left, passing the new Animal Crackers Wall (with moderate slabs), then into & out of a large cave, eventually arriving at De Bibliotek, another new crag with good 5.11s & .12-s. Continue past this walls towards a large cirque with a waterfall. Cross awooden bridge w/ safety cable, pass behind the waterfall, and follow stairs up to the big ledge, where the first routes are located. The first route encountered is "Zendebad".
