  • East Spur is accessed by Guided Tour Only
  • Some areas require a guide.

  • Description 

    Most of the problems here are very sheltered from the elements. The problems are all on the insides of corridors or the undersides of jumbled boulders. There are also sveral boulders around Stableboy rock which are also quite sheltered as well.

    • Classics on Stableboy are Mr Serious and The French Tickler.
    • Hi-Pro Glow is a classic V6 and part of completing the sign of the devil (Hi-Pro, Alf in a Blender and Uncut Yogi) a popular day for those that are able.
    • Two classic testpieces in the area are Rumble in the Jungle and The Flame.
    • A last boulder in the area that is more out in the open has Longshot on it which is high and commiting, but easier than the other classics in the area.

    Getting There 

    From campground overflow head through Tabloid pass. Then stay to the left contouring along the rock wall (if still allowed) till you come to Hi-Pro Glow, go past this and up to your left on a huecoed ramp to Stableboy Rock. Or from The Gunks, head over the rock behind The Vulgarian and follow this into a corridor that will deposit you at the opposite side of Stableboy Rock.

    This route is the obvious line in the center of Stable Rock. Begins on the large sloping jugs at head height and climbs straight up through small crimps and sloping gastons to a committing lunge at the finish. Beta: Begin on the sloping jugs and take the first 1/2 pad crimp with your right hand. Heel up on the sloping jugs and reach up left hand to a good but slightly sharp gaston. Stand up and get a horrid right hand crimp, then back step the 1/2 pad crimp with your right foot and lunge fo...[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
