A nice wall with sport routes from 5.6 to 5.12a. Probably about 30 routes total. Faces East. Most of the routes are well shaded by trees.

Getting There 

Going west on Hwy 71 on the southside of Austin, you will come to a light just before intersecting with Hwy 360. There will be a business park on the right(north) side. Turn into this busines park and make your way towards the wooded area on the west side, park either in the dirt parking lot or business park and hike along the trails. You will see that wall across the creek bed.
There are several ways to get here by hiking along the creek also.

Diving for Rocks 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  TX : Barton Creek Greenbelt : Seismic Wall A.K.A. Maggie'...
The crux is getting from the 2nd to 3rd bolt. The "easiest" way to do it is probably to lunge, but it can be done static as well. I reccommend doing it both ways for the full effect! After the crux, it is easier, but you still gotta hang on. Some of the rock up top can be a bit dusty....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX

It should be noted that you have to wade across the creek to get to the crag if you use the approach described here. A towel and Chacos are nice.

Just to prepare yourself, this wall has High first clips.
Also wear some shoes you can get wet for wading through the creek. The rocks on the bottom are unpleasant without shoes.
