Shady most of the day do to the big roof.
Probably the most impressive feature at the North Shore, if not all of Reimer's. Consists of a giant horizontal roof with several perma-drawed traversing routes.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail as far as you can. This is the last area you'l encounter as of this writing and very very obvious. You'll pass one horizontal roof on the way but it isn't nearly as big. This one is probalby 40-50' wide and only 15-20' off the ground.

Start in the middle of the roof on top of the large boulder. A direct start from the ground is viable but friable holds make it less than idea. Climb up the face to the roof and then start traversing on monster holds. After the third perma look for a hand swallowing pocket jug in the roof and pull some fun thugish moves on big hold over the lip...[more]   Browse More Classics in Texas
