I'm considering a 3 month assignment in Dallas. Is there any good climbing nearby, preferably trad. mike olsen

Depends on your definition of "good". 45 mins West of Dallas/Ft.W is Mineral Wells, all TR. North into Oklahoma is some sport and trad stuff on Quartz Mtn and the Wildlife Refuge. SW a few hours in Austin is the greenbelt (in the city), Reimers (on the SW side), and Georgetown (on the N side), all are sport. A long days drive West gets you to Hueco Tanks in El Paso. And some go NE into Arkansas. You will find more info for these climbing areas on the mountainproject home page. I think the longest at any of these spots is a few pitches. Pat Cooper

Mike, as stated above for trad the Wichita Wildlife Refuge has enough great granite to keep you busy for three months, Austin ' s Enchanted Rock has a good assortment of trad as well. There are other less frequented spots around but for three months those would surely not disappoint. Now if it's Dallas vs Boulder or Cali or something then it's a no brainer. If in Dallas swing by our place we have all the area guide books in our library and we are always looking for partners. Cheers. Christopher Gibson

Christopher,
Wow, thanks! I like the enthusiasm for local areas. I love our local, albeit not world class crags in TN. I'll be in the area 9.22 working at North Hills hospital. I thank you for your offer and I'll take you up on it. This is my first travel assignment and need local connections.
