Description 

The Southeast Face is the largest climbing area on Buzzard's Roost and home to the classic routes Eat and PG-13. The routes climb two opposing walls that form a large "dihedral." Three of the routes actually start back inside "caves" formed by the large boulders and make for good summer destinations when the rock everywhere else is too hot to touch. The Southeast Face also gets afternoon shade. The tops of the climbs can be reached by walking around the left side of PG-13 and scrambling up the slabs to the top.

Getting There 

See the directions to Buzzard's Roost. The two bolted lines, La Realidad and PG-13, will be the first couple of routes on the left. They make good landmarks together with the tree on top of Eat.

P.G. 13 climbs the right line of bolts up the steep face to the left of Eat. It is separated from Eat by a wide crack. Climb the steep face past four bolts pinching crystals and smearing on the face, generally following a small “ridge” or bulge that winds its way to the top. The climbing is sustained with difficult moves near each bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
