Description

Really long; really cool route found at the Hideout in Muir Valley. Follows an obvious crack system that goes through some gently overhanging rock and up the length of the wall. An exciting adventure!

Location

The dihedral located where the trail for The Hideout dumps.

Protection

Standard rack with runners. The wide crack staring down at you from 70 feet up narrows to a point where it will accept a bomber #2 Camalot up high.

So this did NOT feel like 5.7 to me, especially at Muir. The dihedral was also super dirty and sketchy, and pulling on those plates at the top, I was just waiting for one to pull off...although you can stick a bomber #4 in the fist crack before launching into that section. That said, it was a fun climb, but not 5.7 IMO. The top section felt exactly like the 10s
over at Great Wall. Have never experienced an overhanging jug haul trad climb before! When I hear "gently overhanging," I don't exactly picture body-sized roof pulls... Apr 10, 2017

This is the best 5.7 at the RRG, never will you find a steeper climb with such good hold at the grade. Crux is the first 10-15 feet then its 5.5 sailing on jugs. Sep 7, 2016

Plates that you haul on above the roof are SCARY thin, but seem to be solid. Fun route! Nov 16, 2010

Great route! Nice and long too. The quality of huge plate jugs at the top worried me a bit, but maybe that's because I'm not used to the Red Jul 11, 2010
