Description 

Newest climbing area near Austin. Be ware of friable rock, death blocks, and dirt/mud ledges. In spite of this, the climbing is quite great on sharp holds that haven't been polished like everything else around Austin. As the area sees more traffic it will likely clean up into a great climbing area.

Getting There 

Same directions as Reimer's Ranch proper but follow signs to the North Bank Parking Area

I climbed at North Shore on 8/8 and left my size 36 pair of La Sportiva Testarossas. If anyone has seen them please let me know! Thanks.

Season outlined above showing a July peak is flat out wrong. Peak seasons for Reimer's are from about October through to around April. Some brave the summer humidity, but it's much quieter during the summer months.
