Description

Despite the fact this area contains some excellent walls and routes, it is not quite as popular as other areas such as Seismic or New Wall. This area is well shaded.

Getting There

The closest entrance is located at the Gus Fruh entry point for the Greenbelt. Heading west from Lamar on Barton Springs Rd., take a left onto Barton Hills Dr. Follow this road south until you reach the sign for Gus Fruh entry point. Park on the street and take the trail down to Barton creek. Cross the creek and take a right on the trail on the far side. The first wall that one encounters will be Gus Fruh, followed by Myth Wall, then Kingdom of Ging, then Rubber Wall, and finally Guide's Wall (Kingdom of Ging is notable for its large cave about 7' high that runs the length of the base of the wall).
