Description 

A west facing wall, with nice views of Pywiack Dome & Pennyroyal Arches. There is only a handful of routes here, so if you see climbers be prepared for a que. The rock is of the most excellent quality (of course). It can be a bit windy though as the breezes coming off the lake get funneled up Hwy 120 between Poly Dome and Pywiack Dome.


Getting There 

If you are heading North away from Lake Teyana after less than a mile you will come to a 20 foot (or so) in-cut on the left hand side of the rode (east) park on the west side (nearest the steep incline) and the crag is up above the incut about a 2-3 minute up-hill hike from the road.

The Falcon Guide (pg 36) states that there is a 3rd class gully located to the right (north) of the A Circle Wall. I would hardly would call it a 3rd class gully it is more or less a very easy 5th class climb complete with loose rock and moss. Exercise caution when climbing up and whatever you do don't throw your rope over to the big ledge before stepping over, it might roll off... Don't ask me how I know that....
