Birthday party

Post by sally423 » Tue May 28, 2013 4:55 pm

Hello, I am looking for a nice climbing location in the gorge to host my daughter's birthday party. The age group would be mostly 9 and 10 year olds and only a few of them have been climbing before at Vertical Adventures. I look forward to your suggestions.

Either the Muir Valley pavilion, or if you prefer the PMRP, perhaps next to the oil derrick on the side of the road up into Coal Bank.

It's too bad the Teahouse got burned down.

don't underestimate the joy of using a bb gun from the woods to make civilization safe against the maraudering hordes at Sore Heel. a kid's sense of justice needs this encouragement.

You could give them some shovels and get them to fix all that f'd up loose *&@#* gravel on the hills into Sore Heel and Coal Bank.

Thanks for the suggestions. Someone told me there's a clown that drives a 4-wheeler around Muir Valley. Does anyone know if he is available to rent?

But its so good that it was re-built and better than before! Be sure not to miss the two bolts that are spaced perfectly apart for a hammock on the back right side.

Does anyone know if there are any shorter routes at Muir Valley? I am afraid that some of the kids may get afraid of heights if they climb higher than the climbing gym but I still want them to have the satisfaction of reaching the anchors.

I would recommend bringing a large bell for them to ring at the top.

From what I understand Muir Valley sounds like they may have something like that already set up. I heard that Land Before Time Wall and Practice Wall are good but they aren't in the guidebook that I have. Does anyone have any information on those walls or know if they are in the newest guidebook?

Sally do you live under a bridge by any chance?
Skipping cruxes is a way of life.

Yes I live under one of the bridges that the golf cart clown built in Muir Valley. I hear that Land Before Time Wall is a world class wall for trolls due to the short nature of the routes. Is this true?
