About Muscle Beach:

OW central...highest concentration of OWs in the area. Good rock and quite a few quality (if you like OWs) routes.
Approach: Half way up the hill where the trail seems to split/end, bear left. The approach is easier (relatively), and will put you at the first (left end) route on the wall. MB sees less traffic than many Red crags, so the approach may be challenging and the trail harder to find/navigate than at some Red locations. Well worth the time. When you think about the route grades remember these routes were FAed a long time ago.
Approach Time: More like 15-25 minutes the first time you go up
