The Brilliant Pebble Rock Climbing
The Brilliant Pebble offers a little something for everyone. This very large boulder has routes on all sides, with a good variety of grades, both trad and sport. Although the climbs are only 50 feet tall, they are all very high quality. It's also a short easy walk to the Mud Hueco Area by following the trail directly behind Delta Star.
Follow the Propp's Ridge Road approach for all of the South Side Meadow Crags. At the point where you turn left on to the railroad grade continue for .3 miles to a campsite area on the right. Park in the campsite, or if it is full, there are many places here to pull off and park, just be sure to keep your vehicle completely off the road. From the campsite, walk back upstream along the road for about 15 yards and look for a trail that heads up right into the woods. It's only maybe a 100 yard approach to the Pebble. The trail will bring you directly to the overhanging white face with several hard sport climbs.

A great route for the Dyno Maestro, Gym Rat, Hang Dog or Rock Jock. In fact it would probably be in the best interest of anyone and everyone to try this route as long as they dont mind hucking meat. The Gipper is by far the most fun out of a distinguished group of short bouldery routes at the NRG.Overhanging approximately 35 degrees, and featured with just the right amount of smooth pockets, slopers and underclings, every move is interesting and somewhat difficult.
