Description

Waco Wall is the slab that rests on the west side of the ravine below the Pangea Wall and the north end of the First Corridor at Texas Canyon. The name, which honors the Texas theme at Texas Canyon, is a misnomer as there are scarcely more than two or three huecos or pockets on this short wall, unlike the other walls throughout Texas Canyon. While the wall appears to be an easy low angle slab from a distance, the easiest route checks in at 5.9. The Waco Wall consists of fine grained conglomerate that hosts small sharp xenoliths that are solidly embedded into the surrounding matrix. Fun, "sticky" friction, small hold pulling, and technical footwork characterize the climbing on the Waco Wall for sure.

While the landings are reasonably flat some climbs have "bouldery" starts, so a stick clip maybe handy.

Getting There

Walk downhill from the north end of the First Corridor. The Waco Wall is the slab on the left with the yellow lichen and the right slanting seams.
