|East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only|
Some areas require a guide.
Juggy horizontal roof climbing is the center piece of the area, though there are several other walls and boulders in the immediate area. Problems vary in difficulty from easy to V11. The classics are Moonshine Roof (center)
V4 and Power of Landjager V11. There are some good warm ups around as well. Just playing on all three versions of Moonshine is fun. Guided tour access only so crowds are limited, this area is pretty easy to disperse in on a tour.
From campground overflow parking, take the main trail around the outside of East Mt and through Tabloid Pass between East Mt and the East Spur, continue around staying close to East Mt ending up along the edge of a meadow. Pass The Donkey Show boulder. Eventually you come to a spot where there is an island of rock (gilligans island) on your left and East Mt on your right. Follow slabs up and right onto East Mt, roughly following the breaks inthe rock but working sightly more up. When the slabs end pick up a trail heading straight into East Mt, you will see Moonshine Roof facing you shortly.

Start in the shared pockets with the V4 "Moonshine Roof", and climb onto the diving board. Where "Moonshine Roof" breaks right continue straight and around the corner thru challenging beta intensive moves. Get established under the final roof with a good left hand and enter the crux pulling over the final lip to good holds above. Some toe hook trickey...[more] Browse More Classics in TX
