there is some neat stuff out here, a lot of it is ...

Description 

Right on Lake Texoma off of Hwy 75 just before Oklahoma. It's a crazy mix of Limestone and Sandstone. It's a tricky place because the rock breaks really easy so you really have to check your routes to be safe. Mostly a Bouldering area. They are developing and making a guide at the moment with 180 plus problems. The landings are very rocky and uneven suggest a large pad.

Getting There 

Hwy 75 north to Denison TX, Exit for Lake Texoma Dam at exit 71. Go left, When you get to the dam turn right across the spillway and stay straight till you reach Esinhower State Park. 5 dollar entry and the rangers are cool with climbing as long as you have a crash pad!

remind yourself just how small of holds you need to climb a vertical face with this problem. Climb the face 5 feet to the left of the tall arete. Watch out, you'll be topping out above the pile of rock on your left, a fall would definitely result in a twisted ankle. start on 2 good holds and good feet, then make 2 static movements onto a slopey crimp then a very small horn with a thumb catch. top out slightly left above the rock pile....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX

Is anyone climbing out here this Fall? I've been the past couple of weekends (October '14) to check out Fossil and Elm areas; I've been finding really fun problems (with help of the printed guide)... along with problems not in the guide.

There is HUGE potential here for some big boulder problems... need a few pads and spotters to make anything happen due to sketch landings. I'm in Denton, PM me if you want to get out there.
