Description 

This is the steep wall between Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall and House of Pain. Steep starts on fractured looking rock yields to less steep climbing above, in some cases on tuffas. Most all the routes are 5.12 or 5.13. Morning shade and afternoon sun as with most of Riemer's. Expect some amount of solitude at this wall as the routes are difficult and seemingly less popular than those at House of Pain and the Sex Cave.

Getting There 

Walk down from Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall past the Mai Tai Wall. This is the steep wall that overhangs the trail running up to Block Party (route with fixed draws that traverses out an obvious high horizontal roof).

This route has a distinct crux going to the pocket in the middle of the lower steep wall. The climbing stays on you till you are over the lip though and the final roof provides an additional challenge. Really if you know where you are going though you should not come off up high.Traverse right and slightly up on thin crimps. Move up to a sidepull and make a desperate (crux) move to the obvious 2 or 3 finger pocket. Move up into the short left facing block just below the lip. Make a long cross to...[more]   Browse More Classics in Texas
