McKinney Falls State Park Rock Climbing
is located in southeast Austin. The climbing here consists of short, relentless and steep boulder problems. Powerful and pockety.
Heading South on I-35 exit William Cannon and head east until you dead end into McKinney Falls Pkwy go left and then take another left into the park. Pay at the booth and take your first right, go to the end and park. There's a trail that leads to a opening - walk across the limestone slab to the left. Once at the edge look for the oak tree to get down.
A current breakdown of the fees can be found on the McKinney Falls State Park site
. As of October 2008, the fees are :
- A day pass to the area for those 13 and older is $4.
- Sites with electric and water -$16

Match on a small slopey edge. Make a BIG move to a good edge. You can then either go to the top or move to the right sidepull before making a move to the top. Crux is the first move of the route; the slopey edge has a decent thumb-catch to pull off of. The key to the first move is finding good feet to crank off....[more] Browse More Classics in TX

Day use fee is now $6 per person. When the front gate closes use the self pay station at the front gate. Not free after 5. There is a night patrol. The 11/30/13 flood has left a lot of debris. The map point shows Onion Trail not the bouldering area but the location description is accurate. There are usually maps at the self pay station that clearly mark the bouldering area but not the routes.

Anybody have decent directions to the Mill Creek(?) area in Mckinney, tried to find it last time I was out there was told to downclimb near a cement picnic table, found a table scrambled down to find an extremely overgrown cliff band, the ground was covered with old logs

Due to heavy rains followed by flooding in May 2015 and October 2015, many trees have fallen along the bluff and obstructed the trail/landing zone for many of the problems here. This gives certain problems dangerous landings but more importantly makes them quite prone to tree-dabbing. Most of injury wall, some of porcelain doll wall, and the project (born to drag) wall will require some attention before being climb-able again. Also the problem Supernugget is super soaked much of the time.
