Description 

The huge square cut boulder. The Briscoe County Boulder features short, but more traditionally bolted lines. The rock is more friable and features fewer pockets then found elsewhere at Texas Canyon. While the boulder may appear featured and solid, the stone is more akin to what John Long has characterized as "vertical mud." And there's the poison oak, as well.

Getting There 

Walk west from The Canyon.
