The Greatest Miller Fork Crag

Post by rich » Tue Jun 09, 2015 12:42 am

Now that I've got your attention with a clickbait title, I thought it would be beneficial to get some discussion concerning the walls in MFRP. So lets hear it: which ones are awesome and have the best routes? Do certain walls have characteristics that make them appealing/intriguing? I've only been to Cloud Nine and Graveyard back in 2013 when they were still being developed, so I can't contribute much to the discussion.

disclaimer: This is a self serving post because I will be back in the red this week after being gone way too long and want to check out some awesome shit in MFRP.

Definitely second Dolphin Wall, plus Neverland, Middle Earth, Shallow End, Real Deep End, Rando Wall, Mental Ward, Jerry Lode, Creepy Marty's Lurky Playground, and of course Hal Garner Memorial Crag (RIP Hal)

Any info on dolphin wall? I do not see it mentioned in the online guide or anywhere else. Good places to check out some 10's or maybe 11a?

It's across the valley from Nebuchadnezzar crag. Make sure you have two gold coins for the ferryman.

It's not the climbing we hate. It's you.

After that 12 minutes of ecstasy the rest of the MFRP will be a letdown.

Y'all didn't really put rebar on a 5.9 did you? That's ridiculous
How you compare may not be as important as to whom you are compared
