Description 

This wall provides an assortment of excellent quality, moderate routes. Routes range from 5.8 to 5.11 and require no more than 8 quickdraws. Trees keep portions of the wall in the shade during the hot Texas days. As the routes are moderate and of good quality, and the wall is easily accessible, this area can become quite crowded on the weekends.

Getting There 

Descend from the parking lot through the canyon. After exiting the canyon, turn right. This wall is located after Zoe's Wall. Routes covered here include those in the Dead Cats Annex (located immediately to the right of Dead Cats proper).
