This is the steep wall between Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall and House of Pain. Steep starts on fractured looking rock yields to less steep climbing above, in some cases on tuffas. Most all the routes are 5.12 or 5.13. Morning shade and afternoon sun as with most of Riemer's. Expect some amount of solitude at this wall as the routes are difficult and seemingly less popular than those at House of Pain and the Sex Cave.

Getting There 

Walk down from Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall past the Mai Tai Wall. This is the steep wall that overhangs the trail running up to Block Party (route with fixed draws that traverses out an obvious high horizontal roof).

Ramble up the face to difficult moves reaching the first flake in the roof. A long move to a sloper on the second rail is followed by several jugs heading left across the roof. Cruxy section comes at the third draw in the roof at some crimps and slopey pinches and sidepullish holds. Eventually reach the end of the roof and a couple of juggy pockets. Cryptic moves lead up the short grey face on slopey holds and sidepulls to the anchor, it is difficult to see your feet on this last section so plan...[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
