|Just went out here today to check it out and I was pleasantly surprised. It is an absolutely gorgeous drive out there, and the rock location right on the creek makes for a nice setting. But, that was also a small drawback to the crag, as most all of the bottoms of the routes were surrounded by water. That's no problem though if you lower down to start the route, though you'd probably want your partner to belay from above. It might make leading a route hard unless your belayer was standing on the other bank. I hear the water line goes down later in the season though, so that might remedy this. At any rate, the rock was a little dirty at the bottom, but the climbs were great! If you want a nice peaceful place away from the hustle and the bustle and are sick of all those Castle Rock slopers, come check out the nice crimpers and features on this rock. Definitely makes for a nice day!|

Sorry I didn't like your home crag, Guadalupe Rocks. I think my climbing partner might still be mad at me for making him climb with me there that day.
One of the main issues is that since water surrounds most of the climbs, the rock is pretty dirty and unfortunately this will be a continual problem since the water levels change throughout the year.
p.s. I will measure the rock. I highly doubt it is 45 feet most of the year, but I could be wrong.
