Hi Everyone,

Many thanks for all the replies and recommendations Cool

We had two days of fun climbing at RRG.

Day one (am): We went to Military Wall. IMO not a great place for beginners, but the wall further in with the 12's looked awesome. We did some easier stuff (not so great quality routes) and I did Fuzzy Undercling 5.11b - Awesome route!!!

Day one (pm): We went up to Left Flank, some real nice easier climbs here and also did To Defy The Laws Of Tradition -5.10a.
Recommend the place for easier climbs.

Day two (late start): We went to Roadside (this place is awesome - some of the locals will poo poo it a little because they have been there so much, but we found it to be great!!)
We did some easy routes and then did Pulling Pockets and three other routes on the same wall (not sure of the names)
Day two (pm): Swam in pool

We stayed at the Lil' Abner Motel (nice place) with a great pool. If you're visiting first time, be sure to pull into the curio/gift shop along the way.
For food, we ate at miguel's (great pizza + shop) and Subway for everything else.

The locals living there were friendly and really nice people.
Conversation we overheard:
Tourist: Have you lived here all your life?
Shop owner: Not yet

We also saw 5 Copperhead snakes (some of them alarmingly late!) A lot of people mentioned that Muir Valley is great!
Thanks to the locals who were kind enough to show us around

We will be back Wink
