Description

Nolan River is a bouldering area tucked away along the nolan river near Blum Texas. While the guidebook(TX limestone bouldering) has most of the problems fairly stout (hard) there are some easier lines as well with a little bit of exploring of rocks. This area has still a bit of potential and is a safe-access area so far. Just be fairly quiet b/c there are homes above the cliff line. Quality rock, with more than a days worth of good stuff!

Getting There

Highway 67 south to Cleburne. 174 south through Rio Vista. Left on FM 933. Cross bridge over Nolan River. Park. walk back across river to obvious cliff line.

Well you can't ever go wrong with the Wichitas or Quartz mountain. Two of my favorites for sure. It's a shame we are so limited in north Texas. There are a handful of places but access is either denied or sticky! Aug 11, 2017

It is a shame Ryan. guess the best climbing in north Texas is Gym climbing or just head to The Wichitas. Aug 3, 2017
Went out here a few times in late march. Only climbed around the Jizzersize Boulders. There is quite a large section in the "Texas Limestone Bouldering" book that is not here on MP.

There was a lot of snakes. There isn't a great trail to the rocks, and you have to cross the river that was only running a few inches deep.

We spent the morning here, and then would go to Paluxy (sub 30 min drive away) to take a nap and climb a bit out there for a complete day.

The Atlantis Boulder was surrounded by drift wood and we saw a bunch of snakes in it.

Parking on the southside of the bridge didn't give us any problems. The locals parked there as well. Apr 1, 2017

Hey Keith, I was wondering if any one climbed at The Burn( chisholm trail park) anymore? It was always sketchy with land owners in the late 80's and 90'sclimbing with the old crew. Jan 20, 2016
The bouldering area commonly known as the Nolan River aka Blum
is on Army Corps of Engineer land. It is a federal park open to all.
This area has been federal park land since the 1960's.
Enjoy!

Access is open Nov 20, 2014
