Fun route, but I think it's closer to 50ft, not 70... Aug 3, 2008

I think this route and Gettin' Lucky are both overrated. May 26, 2009

The first few moves are greasy and sequential enough to call 5.10a. The overhanging plate haul at the top is a blast! Oct 19, 2009

Great climbing! The start is the hardest part, especially if you're short. From there, it's pumpy and loads of fun. May 16, 2010
Very polished, especially at the start. Jun 2, 2010

The start is now polished beyond belief. 10c start to 5.9 climbing. Stick clip is advisable if you are not solid at the mid 5.10 grade.

stick clip is nearly mandatory on this- the start isnt that hard- one move, but you could break your ankles if you blew it. Oct 25, 2010

Good climb, has been pushed up to 10a primarily for the start and overall hold polish. Fun route, but eclipsed by its nearby cousin. Oct 9, 2016

Plate Tectonics. WAS a masterpiece in it’s day. The bottom 1/3 of the climbs on this wall have eroded so dramatically due to the constant climber traffic it gets. Please help preserve what is left of this climb and its neighbors by thoroughly getting the sand off your shoes before climbing. Putting a tarp or your rope bag at the start is helpful. I love Muir Valley and any help from fellow climbers to conserve it is greatly appreciated. It needs our collective effort and consciousness as the numbers of climbers continues to rise. Nov 8, 2018
