Description

This is the first wall that you encounter when approaching from the Gus Fruh entry point. Plenty of exceptional routes on a well shaded wall - a great place to climb on a hot Texas day. Most of the climbs are polished and lead to sloping top outs, making climbs in this area feel stiffer than their original grades.

Getting There

Enter from the Gus Fruh Greenbelt entry point and cross the creek as soon as possible.

This is my favorite in-town crag. Great quality rock but beware of sandbagged routes. If you can't climb a 5.10a you'll have a tough time with anything here even the so-called 5.8s and 5.9s. Nov 17, 2010
