Great climbing at harder grades than anywhere else on the Greenbelt. Best in late fall to late winter when there's no humidity. Expect to see people (not necessarily crowds) on the weekends and certain nights of the week but most of the time it's not too crowded. A bit polished as are most of the routes that see a lot of action on the Greenbelt but it's climbing and there's some good moves and positions as well as power climbs to be done here!

Getting There 

This is connected to New Wall and the approach is the same for parking

The crux is the bottom half. I recommend stick clipping the first bolt, otherwise you might end up flying over the big ledge you started on. Dyno to good jug in the beginning, work through some pockets and crimps, then finish up on jugs. Top out is pretty loose so be careful....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
