This is SANDSTONE, although the routes are solid they should be approached cautiously. With that said, most routes are fairly easy once the holds and feet are located. Nothing to drive out of your way for but problems nevertheless. 15 routes are set so far. Careful of poison ivy.
     During the rainy seasons, the lower area can be entrenched with water hence the picture. This next year will be difficult for me to upkeep the boulder so expect foliage during this next spring (2019). The best time to climb here is during fall and winter.

March 5th 2018.
Note: I have recently added 5 new problems that can be found on the back far right of the boulders. Jugs on jugs, taste like sand, doors, Ashley's beta, Scotty knows the way.

Getting There [Edit]

There is a large parking lot off of the Katy trail northwest of the area.

Thanks for posting this area! I used to climb here on college breaks. It's a nice little micro area although its sandy as all get out.

There's a slightly overhanging face just to the left of the Fass Hersteller route thats a nice little problem. Starts on a sloper and works left through some sidepulls and tops out right in the middle of the boulder on some more slopers. May 9, 2016
