Description2/5 is Mike's assessment of the climb up the right of Muir Buttress. Climbed
to the trees onto the classic outcrop of several giant stacked blocks. Intimidated I stayed in the left facing corner until it becomes a hard short pillar with its small square top. Very nice feature. Above's the severe crux up the short lichen covered wall. Excellent on sight lead of this, Mike. We did Muir's second pitch to the old belay. We hadn't been here before.
There's ten feet over from the old belay the bolted belay.
The first pitch to Muir's is gone. The start now is (5-8).
In 2013 I belayed Ryan as he climbed sixty feet higher above right of the top bolted belay on Muir. I refer to it as Muir direct. I couldn't get up onto the hard severe roof and Ryan rappelled down and we rappelled.
