Description Suggest change

Located in the bend of the Rio Grande, Big Bend National Park is located in west Texas and encompasses over 880,000 acres of land. One of the more remote parks in the lower 48, the area covers a wide arrange of environments - from desert to mountain to river. Much of the rock in the park is not congenial to climbing as much of consists of unstable igneous rock. However, there is climbing to be found and, in many cases, you may find that you and your party are the only souls for miles around.

Be aware that, if you do find yourself climbing in the park that the environment is harsh. The region is extremely arid and even on what seems to be a cooler winter day, the rock on exposed faces (as most are) is hot to the touch.

Getting There Suggest change

As this is a remote park, you will first have to pick a jumping off point.
