DescriptionShort but overhanging sandstone with a couple fun problems, elimination problems make for good times. The wall itself is about 20 yards long in the shade almost all day. Not a destination area but an excellent place to train for locals mostly due to proximity and not worrying about every hold breaking off *cough* Mystery Science Theater. At first I hesitated at putting this up however there have been no access issues for the time I have been climbing here. As the rest of the areas in the local vicinity have been shut down I thought that this would be a convenient alternative. Please leave no trace. Also feel free to chip in on the grading, I know its off.
Also don't climb here after rain, the holds will break.
UPDATED directions thanks to Joseph:
The address for the base of the hill is 285-461 W Gainsborough Rd. If you have trouble look up Tarantula Hill. Park by the oak tree.
