Medicine Wall Rock Climbing
Alexandra Ballester deciphers Honeycomb.
Limestone Cliffs up to ~25m. The rock varies from excellent blue rock to blocky choss. Be cautious pulling on anything that seems loose, it probably is.
North facing so it does get SOME shade in the summer but the sun sneaks in when it's high in the sky. It can be COLD in the winter but the sun is easy to walk to to warm up. Each of the areas are really all part of one semicontinuous cliff band. Climbers would refer to different distinct areas as a "wall" and the practice stuck. Think of each "wall" area in the Euro sense of sectors on a larger wall.
Star Ratings are based on climbs ONLY at Med Wall. Don't think for a second that a 4 star route here will rank up there with a 4 Star route in the Valley or Smith Rock.
THIS AREA IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. ACCESS IS BEING WORKED ON. THIS WILL BE UPDATED WHEN THINGS CHANGE

: Medicine Wall

Probably the 2nd best line on NT after Bow Legged. MIGHT even be the best. Head up past the cave and into a shallow groove past 2 bolts before pulling onto the grassy ledge. (Some gardening should clean that ledge up). Pull past the bulge, onto easier ground heading up and slightly right towards the base of the overhanging, left facing corner. Climb up the corner on edges and pockets before reaching a small crack near the top....[more] Browse More Classics in TX

Is this area still open for climbing?

This area is closed. Two people were killed in an accident recently. The landowner has made it clear that all trespassers will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Please do not try to access this property. Access is being worked on by Central Texas Mountaineers and the Access Fund, and we are hopeful that there will be a resolution in the future that will allow for open access for climbing. Not honoring closures hurts access and the climbing community in general, not to mention the fact that it is dangerous and illegal to trespass on private property. If you are interested in more information feel free to contact me directly. Jason Mann Access Coordinator, Central Texas Mountaineers. firstname.lastname@example.org
