Mt. Muir 3rd Class Route
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Here are the two 3rd class routes I climbed on Mt. Muir in September 2007. The red was my ascent path and was slightly exciting at the large flakes before the big 'chimney' where the blue and red paths connect. The flakes are loose and fairly vertical requiring some commitment. After that, the blue path leads across the slab traverse with bomber hands on a flake and up the least exposed (often enclosed, actually) route to the summit, with another chimney-like haul to the top of the summit block. Other than some narrow sections with minor exposure the rock was easier and more secure on my (marked in blue) descent path. Photo taken by mattyj.
