Description

This beautiful area, located on a bend of the Brazos River in North Texas, has a selection of over 90 short, bolted routes, with the potential for many more. Bolting began in November of 2002. Some of the routes have loose rock on them, so be careful. There is an overhung cave with the first 5.12 named Columbia, bolted Feb. 1 ,2003. POB is full of several good boulders. Most of the bolted routes now are vertical, and up to 5.12 in difficulty. POB was closed for a few years but has recently re-opened to climbing.

POB Guide

Getting There

From Mineral Wells Texas: Go West out of town on HWY 180. Just west of town, head North/Northwest on 337, towards Graham. After about 25 miles on this road, and just after you cross the county line, look for the open gate across the highway from a gravel pit. If you get to Graham then you have gone too far. Make sure you stop at the house to pay. The entrance for POB is at the GPS location.
