|Some areas require a guide.|
The Terminator Boulder and surrounding boulders offer a variety of fun problems from V1 to V-double digits. Most of these problems are very steep, climbing out cave roofs. The centerpiece of this area is actually a splitter hand and finger roof crack, that was once a popular 5.12+ toprope problem (though it now appears The Terminator hasn't seen action for quite some time). The boulders face south, so they tend to bake in the sun, although since these are caves, most of the problems are largely shaded, with only the topouts exposed to the sun.
This is a tricky spot to find. From the entrance station, park in the East Lot, and ascend the chains. Weave through the Small Potatoes, and the Big Time Boulders to arrive at the Nuclear Arms area. From the Grenade, descend for 50 feet to the south into the North Mountain Meadow. Locate a nice trail heading south through the meadow. The goal is the SE corner of the meadow. Climb onto rounded slabs, and descend to the south for about 40 feet to a large tier. Head West along this tier to the Terminator Boulder.

This is a spectacular and burly sandbag. Start at the very back where the crack meets the chimney, stepping off the boulder to the left to gain the first sinker hand. The first ten feet will warm you up for the rest, which is unrelenting until you can stand up over the final lip. This is a world class rock climb involving a distinct sequence of wild moves up a striking line on good rock. Climbs like this don't get near enough respect. Tape up and get after it because this is one of the best...[more] Browse More Classics in TX
