Description [Suggest Change]

The lower wall in Comales Canyon. The stream/river runs right by the base of the wall in places. West facing so a bit of afternoon sun, though the hang at the base stays shaded and some routes are shaded by trees. The wall is up to 100' tall and mostly lower angle with many easy to moderate mixed routes.

The first wall the the stream runs along also has a handful of routes on it as well as another wall further up stream from Water Wall.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

The trail up the canyon heads away from the road not parallel to it. Hike up the canyon until you come to the second wall that the stream runs along the base of.
