A mega classic for sure! As overhanging as this one is the climbing never gets as difficult as it looks. It is committing and scary on lead but it protects well and the holds are all there.

We passed through this area on the way back (sorta) to DFW from Sam's Throne. We had a great short time here and climbed Junior Achievement and Cruise Control. Here is the beta: The rock climber's trail sign in the lodge parking lot APPEARS TO POINT TO AN ABOVE CRAG TRAIL THAT DEAD ENDS! An arrow would be nice on the sign. The trail actually is to the right of the sign and descends a staircase like feature that is very hard to see from ground level. The guidebook doesn't mention this. We ended up with an epic approach, consisting of 2 tree rappels, one of which over a ledge.
