Comments: This route is awesome!! It seems this routes difficulty is a bit height dependent as I'm 5'11", and I didn't have nearly as hard a time with it as one of my shorter friends. He's 5'4" and undoubtedly a stronger climber than I am.

Great route to top out to watch the sunset!

Comments: Love the climbing out here, great rock quality, and it's basically in a giant cave so it stays alot cooler than other areas in Austin.
