Description

Multipitch routes varying from 5.5-5.10c slab. Well protected, scenic view of Meyers, Osgood Swamp, and Echo Summit. Walk off down 3rd class slab climbers right.

Getting There

About a 10 minute approach. Take a hard Left immediately after the green gate (almost back toward the hwy) and follow cairns. Keep your eyes peeled, a few "false trails" here and there that dead end.

After a nice bit of uphill hiking, wind up to slab then go left at base of slab. Bolts are super hard to see because they're painted not shiny.

You may see a wire brush tied to a Charlie Brown Christmas tree (like maybe a foot tall) in a crack. That is the start of MU 5.9. 3 pitches. First pitch is 5.5ish with a few 5.7+ moves just before the anchor. 2nd and 3rd pitches have 5.9 moves as the climb gets progressively steeper. Work out call signals and multipitch protocol before climbing as hearing your partner from the 2nd anchor may be difficult due to the angle of the wall.

There's a 3 pitch 10c to the Left of MU. 1st pitch is trad or solo 5.4, 2nd is bolted 5.10c, then final pitch is bolted 5.8.

There's a 4 pitch to the Right of MU that's 5.4-7 called Divided Sky (named after the cafe that you parked and carpooled from because you're so considerate and awesome).

Walk off climbers Right at the top of either and find your way down 3rd class slab back to the trail.

Went to Meyers Multipitch today, but had trouble finding the climbs, so I wanted to add some more detail to the "Getting There" directions.

As it says, after the brown gate, you take a hard left, walking parallel with the highway over flat terrain. The (correct) trails can be hard to find, but there are lots of cairns if you keep your eyes peeled. Once the trails gain some steepness and start winding, it can be easy to head down the wrong path, so keep looking for cairns. You should be able to get to the base of the formation with the multipitch climbs via trails without stepping all over the brush. Finally, maybe we didn't take the usual path up, but we followed cairns and hit the base of the slab at a point that was to the *left* of the climbs. Following the instructions that said to head left at the base of the slab, we found ourselves off trail and very confused, until we turned around and tried heading to the right, where we finally spotted the starting bolts of MU.

The descent is marked by cairns to the right of the bolts at the top of MU and Divided Sky, and isn't hard (3rd class) but can feel a little exposed. Some of had success sliding down on our butts in sandals :) Aug 12, 2018
