Comments: Sorry to hear that, Russell. I've plugged gear into Greenbelt limestone on many occasions and never got any flak for it. The "unethical" statement is untrue, although there are some Austin climbers who refuse to climb trad on the Greenbelt because they believe the rock is too friable. Personally I say it varies a lot depending on the specific wall and that there is some rock totally appropriate for trad.

Comments: This could go on trad gear, but you can't top out to make an anchor. Instead you would have to make an unpleasant traverse to the anchors for Face Off.

Comments: A hold that's used during the crux broke not long ago. It now gives slightly more purchase with the left hand, but doesn't change the nature of the move and the consensus is that the grade is unchanged.

Diving for Rocks is probably the most famous route on this wall.

Comments: A one-move wonder to be sure, but it is a fun move.

Comments: Mike's comments are accurate. There is always a lot of discussion about this climb's grade. I don't want to waste too much energy talking about it since I'm not very fond of the climb, but it certainly was "surprisingly difficult" to me. Although I flashed it (on top rope) successfully, the top of the climb made me upset.
