Description

Dog Town is mostly an east-facing wall with two slightly detached buttresses. Climbing is easy to moderate on relatively good rock. Despite is modest appearance from the road, it is an impressive cliff that offers fun climbing. Area gets nice morning sun and not a lot of shade during the day.

Getting There

See Overview maps for location relative to other areas. Dog Town is the first (farthest north) area in The Refuge. A large cairn marks the approach trail that is directly opposite a sandy camping area in the dry bed of Hackberry Creek. Follow cairns in a meandering way to the base of the east facing wall.

This is a nice, warm crag with good moderate climbs. The mixed climbs are well protected and offer interesting climbing, and the two sport climbs add more fun to the area. The approach is easy on the well-marked trail. Nice work! Dec 18, 2011
