Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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