Jason Rite on Texas Sucks.


Climb the handcrack up into the right-facing corner. Continue up the corner almost to its top, traverse right around a prow and downclimb a short crack to a bolted anchor at a nice ledge.

It is possible to add a second pitch. The nice, steep, twin cracks are Sweeney's Special. The colorful arete to the left is Valhalla. To the right are Ticket To New Zealand, Birthday Crack, and Easy To Remember (P2).


This route starts at a handcrack just to the right of a right-facing corner. It is on the left side of the Apple Cider area.


Standard East A rack with extra hand-sized pieces.

We ran out of time before we got to this, but I really want to, I mean, I drove to Durango from the Southeast and the misery of the two hours I spent in the Texas panhandle were still fresh.

  • Edit: Most of Texas sucks... but climbing season is all year round. Don't be a hater; Texans are a vital part of Colorado's economy!

"Tourism is one of the largest industries in Colorado in terms of jobs, employing 144,300 people in the tourism sector. Overall, these employees earn $4.1 billion annually, contributing to state revenue through income taxes."

No, actually Texas does suck. I could do without them.
