Description 

Shady for the most part, the main face of the boulder faces N and the Wall of Early Morning Light which sits up behind the main face of the boulder faces NE. This area is pretty secluded as there is not much else around here. A smattering of easier problems then good stuff in the V2 to V6 range and 99 Heroin Ballons V8+, which is off on its own. Most of the better problems are tall or have questionable landings, but some of the easier stuff has landings on the trail which is nice and wide as it passes the boulder.

Getting There 

Follow the trail around North Mtn towards East Mtn and at the point where the two are the closest, shortly before a bathroom on the left, there will be a large boulder on your right with a corridor that leads around the back of it. The WEML sits up behind the steep N face of this boulder, walk away from the wall and contour around to the right of the wall that you come to.

Not as scary as its neighbor. The landing is better in that you just have to deal with the lip of the ledge that you will pass over, and once you are over it it is a relatively flat landing. Climb good horizontals straight up to the left of The Berzereker on the N face of the boulder. A good warm-up to check your head space....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
