Finger Food and the call of the wild :)
From Southern California and will be moving to Dallas soon, I've tried my best to do extensive research on "good" climbing near the area and it has been somewhat difficult. All information I've found on the subject seems to be at the earliest from 2009, and somewhat outdated. But nonetheless I will be moving to Dallas and need to climb!!! The areas i've found so far are:
Paradise on the Brazos
Wichita Wildlife Refuge (OK)
Quartz Mt. (OK)
Tonkawa Falls
Rogers Park
and some mystery Sandstone Bouldering area that the owners of Motivation volumes have been developing 2hours from Dallas
Please Please Please If you have any knowledge on any other good climbing areas (bouldering especially) nearby comment/share or if you just have any other good insight on more recent climbing in general in the Dallas region please please share!
Also any further knowledge about this secret area would be great, it sounds amazing!!!
Thanks so much for the help I really need it!

Welcome to Texas.

- As far as I know POB closed this past summer.
- WMWR and Quartz are great for climbing, don't know about the bouldering though as that's not my thing.
- Supposedly some good stuff at Erock (Enchanted Rock State Natural Area).
- There's Mineral Wells SP west of FW but I'm not so sure about bouldering potential.
- HCR is about 6 hours away from Dallas.

Good luck.

Mike on tips
Near is relative - depends on what side of DFW you live:
Mineral Wells - TR only 1-2hrs
POB - Closed and supposedly sold or leased to be quarried 1.5-2.5hrs
Wichita Mountains - 95% Trad mostly single pitch on quality granite 3.5hrs
Reimers Ranch - 95% Sport limestone 4 hours
Enchanted Rock - Trad & Sport granite 4hrs
Arkansas - Many areas 6-7hrs

Austin is only a couple hundred miles away and it has some pretty decent sport climbing on limestone that runs along side the river through the middle of town. worth the trip, specially if your going to enchanted rock. I've heard there's even some deep water solo opportunities.

This place mountainproject.com/v/paluxy-r... is small but is bouldering close to Dallas at Big Rocks Park. I personally have not been. I am home in Fort Worth for Christmas and making a trip out there on Sunday hopefully, barring chance of rain.

If anyone wants to climb there this Sunday, I'd be happy to meet up.

Robbers Cave near McAlester OK is good for bouldering. It's 3-3.5 hours from Dallas and is similar in scale to Mineral Wells but with many more boulders. Lead climbing on a few short routes and bouldering is allowed last I heard.

Mt Magazine AK is about 7 hours and Hueco Tanks is 9-10 hours.
