At least two routes. There are four bolts/hangers on top. This area is off by itself, away from all the other climbing walls.

Getting There 

After going down the stairs, before the hard left (at the fork) into the main canyon, veer right down the trail about 75 feet. You will see the GFIP tower on your right. There is an easy scramble up to the top. The climbing guide available at the park office and this website shows this tower having routes 82 and 83. Do not confuse GFIP with the Scrambled Egg Boulder, which is very close by to the northeast.

Climb into the recess beneath the overhang, then head out to the left over the roof bulge, and up to the top. Getting over the roof bulge is the crux, and shorter climbers might have to campus a few moves. The holds just above the roof bulge are jugs. Sustained climbing to provide the pump. Route overhangs about 10 feet.One of Mineral Wells' better climbs....[more]   Browse More Classics in Texas
