Jumping down to do a problem at Giles.


Giles offers great landings even when the lake is really low. There are several overhung caves and many vertical walls that have excellent problems on solid limestone.

The popular problems in this area can get pretty busy, but its easy to find good lines. Problems are accessed by jumping down then climbing out or by entering the water on the north side of the cove and swimming or floating down.

Getting There 

From the park entrance, stay right when the main road "Y"s. Pass Tatum and Baldwin coves and then look for the road sign for Giles.
