Dragon's Den Rock Climbing
|East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only|
Some areas require a guide.
Probably one of the top 3 most trafficed areas before the guided access restrictions. With great problems in the mid-range from V2 or so to V7, sadly you are not allowed to climb on several of the boulders even when on a tour (the 3 bimbos) which makes the area a little more limited but still quite popular. Classics include the Oseter problems V2 and 3, Hobbit V5, Dragonfly V5, Dry Dock V7++, Full Service V10 and many others that are worth doing when in the area. Truly there is something for everyone at the Dragon's Den.

A great problem with a tough opening move and a comitting move up higher to a cool mantle. The start holds are reputedly chipped out to be better, though there is so much chalk on them now that it is hard to tell though it seems plausible.Start on the two positive crimps and get one foot or the other on and bust a move out right to gaston at the bottom of the crack. Get a foot up near the start holds and fall in to match in the crack. Layback up a move or two and make a long move up to a jug at ...[more] Browse More Classics in TX

It might be better to split this into three sections, since that is how the Wilder guidebook does it (North, Central, and South). If you're trying to add GPS to these areas, there is actually a pretty big distance between North and South Dragon's Den. Also, since it is an area that requires a guide, each of these areas can have separate groups of climbers.
Central has climbs like Hobbit and Brittany in a Blender, while South has Dry Dock, Dragonfly, and Full Service.
