Hi,

Went out to Muir Valley there about a month ago, and the ratings seemed extremely soft, though the climbs were a ton of fun. Just curious if other parts of the Red are like that too.

Thanks

Nearly everyone I've talked to agrees that the ratings at Muir are on the softer side. Why that is, I don't know, but if you go elsewhere around the Red I think you'll find the ratings to be fairly more accurate.

Was torrent falls closed down, or do you have any info on slimbing restrictions?

Yes, unfortunately Torrent Falls is now closed to the public. For more details visit:

Sucks too cause I have yet to redpoint Bandolier. Its a great 11a that would probably go at 11c at Muir.

I was out there the last weekend it was supposed to be open. I maintain optimism that a cabin rental and tipping well at Mark's might glean a temporary pardon but it isn't like there is absolutely nowhere else to climb out there.

it does appear that mark will allow his guests to climb while they are renting a cabin at torrent.

and yes, for the most part, the ratings at muir are a letter grade or two softer than elsewhere in the red. there are exceptions...air ride equipped (11a) for example. the online guidebook has a feature for input about difficulty from users. check it out at...
