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

Pull up onto the lower ledge staying left of the dead stump. Move slightly right and then climb straight up following the Gray Fixe hangers to the base of the small headwall. Surmount the headwall to the right and then straight up past a final bolt to the anchor....[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. email@example.com
