Directions to Sunbeam Buttress

Muir Valley
This wall is in property owned by Muir Valley. Be respectful.
This area is only 5 minutes past the Great Arch. The same logging road that leads to the Solarium and the Great Arch continues to the Sunbeam Buttress. Follow the directions to the Great Arch, but instead of taking the uphill trail on the left to the Great Arch climbing area continue walking along the easy logging road. It will dip down a short hill, across a grassy meadow, and then up another short hill. There will then be a red tagged trail on your left near a very small pond where the road comes closest to the cliff. This short and easy trail will take you to "Sunbeam", "Moonshine", and "Out of the Dark". Routes 5-6 will be to the right and routes 7-11 will be to the left. Routes 12-17 start from the ledge above the fixed rope left of "Sunbeam". See the map below. There is a new trail that meets the cliffline between routes #10 and #11.

This area should be online before the end of June. The routes are still being cleaned and some more trail work needs to be completed. Most of the routes have a big roof over them and will remain dry in a downpour. There are several good 5.10-5.11 sport routes and the approach is very mellow.

We will post the trail directions and route descriptions next week when the trail work is completed and the routes are properly cleaned and have been climbed 10 or 15 times. If you want to climb there now then just contact one of the developers and we'll give you directions.

I'm not sure what happened to the map. This area is a little bit confusing, so would it be possible to have the map put back on here please?

Thank you to whoever fixed that so quickly.
