Description 

A group of boulders clustered off the southwest slope of the Little Dome. The short approach and density of steep, excellent crack climbing makes this a fairly popular area. The Hamburger Boulder and the Grade A Boulder are the two largest rocks, both with excellent cracks. They are surrounded by small boulders that yield excellent bouldering and some shorter topropes. The cracks face various directions and shade is almost always an option. Certainly one of the top crack climbing areas in the park.

Getting There 

Follow the Loop Trail to the southwest out of the parking lot and campground. After a few hundred yards, an obvious trail branches out to the right. Follow this well-maintained trail a short ways to the boulders.

Beautiful, left leaning crack that turns vertical and slightly overhanging halfway up. The route starts with a bouldery step into the seem between the Matterhorn and the Grade A boulder. Tight hands finishes with a bulge to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
