  • East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only
  • Some areas require a guide.

  • Description 

    Less traffic that the main Dragon's Den area. Not as many problems but still some good stuff to throw yourself at. Many of the problems have less than idea landings so you will be happy that you have to take a tour to come here and therefore have many pads availible.

    Some of the better lines are, Instant Classic V3, Ginsu Wall V4 and it's SDS Man Gum V9, Banzai Knife V6 ,Snakecharmer V7 and Whispers of Mortality V10.

    Getting There 

    From the main Dragons Den area (Hobbit) head North for about 100 yards staying roughly at the same level, this is also in the direction of the ampetheatre or the road that conects Pond parking and the campground. The problems are difficult to see as you approach since they either face away from you or are down among the boulders.

    A hard start on crimps takes you up the initial face to where you can move left into the flake and over the higher landing platform. Follow the flake as it angles up and left above the higher landing area. At the end of the flake pull up to the sloping lip and make tough and intimidating moves onto the slab above.The top out on this problem is not your typical Hueco Tanks finish, no jugs up there....[more]   Browse More Classics in Texas
