Beginning March 1, new rules will take effect at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area designed to balance the need to better protect sensitive natural habitats atop the rock, including the vernal pools, and still allow visitors to continue to enjoy central Texas’ most popular destination with their pets.
Starting Tuesday, pets will only be allowed in specified camping areas, day-use areas and the Loop Trail. Pets will no longer be allowed to accompany hikers on the Summit Trail that ascends to the top of Enchanted Rock.
Most trails, including the Summit Trail, are closed 30 minutes after sunset, allowing park visitors to view the sunset and safely descend to the parking lot. The Loop Trail is the only trail open after sunset to gain access to the primitive camping areas.
For more info:
After figuring out a way to start it, continue up the lower angle slab. Then pull the tricky to protect boulder problem found on top of the slab to the climber's left.
The descent is also less than ideal. It's a good idea to look at the descent before committing yourself to this one.
IMO this route really isn't worth the trouble. I'm only posting it here because it serves as a good landmark.
