Description 

The Southeast Face is the largest climbing area on Buzzard's Roost and home to the classic routes Eat and PG-13. The routes climb two opposing walls that form a large "dihedral." Three of the routes actually start back inside "caves" formed by the large boulders and make for good summer destinations when the rock everywhere else is too hot to touch. The Southeast Face also gets afternoon shade. The tops of the climbs can be reached by walking around the left side of PG-13 and scrambling up the slabs to the top.

Getting There 

See the directions to Buzzard's Roost. The two bolted lines, La Realidad and PG-13, will be the first couple of routes on the left. They make good landmarks together with the tree on top of Eat.

Fun and Grins 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  TX : Enchanted Rock State Natura... : ... : Southeast Face
Low crux on good jams leads to rotten, chossy rock but easy climbing. Very fun route, but be prepared for the head game at the top. 5.9 might be soft, but it is hard to say, as the crux is definitely concentrated in the beginning, and eases up considerably afterwards....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
