Like the Dead Cats wall, this face is an ultra-popular area. It has a great mix of sport climbs from 5.8 to 5.12. The base is shady throughout the day while the upper portions of the climbs on the right side of the wall will be in the sun from Noon on. These routes are well bolted and well maintained. Bring along 10 quick draws some long slings and lockers for the top bolts and a 50 meter rope and you'll be set. All routes are single pitch with the descent via rappels from the anchors.
The Dr. Seuss / Prototype wall is located across the creek from the parking lot. Follow the spring flow down the creek towards the Pedernales River. Hike down past the Sex Cave and Sex Wall and cross the creek to the left at your first possible convenience. Follow this trail around past Teva Slab(a detached 25 ft. limestone block) on your right and another large limestone boulder on your left. The trail winds back to the left and dead-ends in a grove of trees and into the Prototype Wall. The Dr. Seuss portion of the wall is 50 ft. to the left on the flank of the Prototype wall.

Eight Flake 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c TX : Reimer's Ranch : Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall
One of the most popular climbs at Reimer's Ranch. Look for a prominent, right-facing flake that goes straight up the left side of Prototype Wall, with a smaller flake above it the slants to the right. Climb past three bolts to the top of the flake (about two thirds the height of the wall), and then transition to the smaller flake above. The crux is moving between the two flakes on some thin holds. Finish at the anchors directly above Bisector. Expect to wait in line for this one....[more] Browse More Classics in TX
