The limestone here can be pretty smooth. There are a few routes that will take gear, but most are sport routes ranging from 20 to 70 feet, usually around 40 ft.
Sometimes the crags can get quite busy, especially on the weekends. Although due to the easy access and route quality, this is a climbers heaven!
There are numerous access points along the creek. For access to Seismic Wall A.K.A. Maggie's Wall, park in the business lot or dirt parking lot off of 360 going NW(west Ben White Blvd) just before you get to MoPac.
To get to Gus Fruh including Kingdom of Ging, Guide's Wall, Gus Fruh aka Fern Bar Area, and Thumbdance, go NW (right if going south on Lamar)on Barton Skyway off of Lamar Blvd. Take this to the end and go left on Barton Hills drive, follow this as it winds around left, about a mile, and park next to the fence that you see. This is the Barton Creek park entrance. Hike down the trail and cross the wash to the cliffs.
For access to New Wall, The Great Wall, and the Terrace, take Barton Skyway exit off of MoPac and go SE (right turn if going north on MoPac). Take this to the end, and park at the intersection with Spyglass Dr.
You can also find some fun bouldering scattered around if you are willing to explore.
