Muir Valley access Details


Steep, sustained pockets with the occasional rest jug and a crux at the top

Scramble up a dirty slab, and make a few tricky vertical moves to reach the base of the overhanging wall above. Pull over a small roof, then follow decent pockets past a few resting jug to a crux on small pockets and edges just below the anchors.

Excellent rock and moves. This one is all about endurance and recovery.


Right of The Crucible.


Bolts and a two bolt anchor
