Just got an email from Friends of Muir Valley about a new wall developed near Practice Wall. Anyone know anything about it? How many routes? Grades?

A friend and I developed 'Recess Rock', the large boulder is located a couple hundred feet up the practice wall trail on your right. It was developed to be a place to take beginning climbers and kids and houses 4 routes, 3-4 bolts each. The grades are 5.3/5.4ish and the routes are about 30 feet tall. There is access to the top to set up top ropes via a trail after the last route.

It's really annoying that the online guidebook isn't being updated with new routes and walls at Muir Valley. Although, a bunch of short 5.3/4's probably doesn't need to be on there anyways.

We just finished naming the routes two days ago, have a little patience. Typically we have to worry about things like user access trails and making sure routes are safe before they are posted publicly online.

The Front Porch has been around a while now and isn't listed on redriverclimbing.com. I'll admit that I thought there were more walls missing than that when I originally commented, but I guess it's not as big of an issue as I thought.

Why don't you submit it then? Doesn't look like the Front Porch is on MP or RRC, stuff like this is a community effort. People aren't missing out on much though, it's not exactly the next Solarium. Mad you can't tick all your points?
