Directions to The Stronghold

Muir Valley
This wall is in property owned by Muir Valley. Be respectful.
Between the Stadium and Ivory Tower. Hike the main trail along the creek towards Inner Sanctum and the Stadium. Just after a bridge, when the trail heads steeply uphill and left to the Stadium, cut right along a new trail to cross the creek and head up a staircase. Follow this trail to the Ivory Tower on your right and further along in the back of the holler to spectacular 35-meter wall known as The Stronghold.

The "line of least resistance" up this massive wall turned out to be pretty resistant. A dyno in the middle adds to the fun. Starts 20' left of Geronimo on a boulder. Steepness:

was all that crap at the base actually poison ivy? I walked over here a bunch but never got too close cause I was afraid I'd die on muir property from rolling in house sized poison ivy vines. if so, did you guys clear it? and thanks for the rock climbs!

Cleared it with some help from Symon and Flunker, but dunno if it came back. Almost all of it was grapevine and Virginia creeper, very little PI.
