Scenic Overlook

Texas > Mineral Wells SP

Description

Mostly fun moderate face climbing and a big easy offwidth full of holds. Plus, you're garaunteed to have plenty of onlookers gawking down from above. This wall technically ends after the crack - the next wall to climbers right is the Main Canyon Left.

Getting There

The wall is directly under the scenic overlook. Follow the trail from the parking lot past the overlook and down the stairs. It will be the first wall you come to on your left. There are plenty of bolts for an anchor on the overlook itself - just hope no kids decide to play with it while you're not looking.
