Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The starts of the routes from the ledge at Prototy...
Like the Dead Cats wall, this face is an ultra-popular area. It has a great mix of sport climbs from 5.8 to 5.12. The base is shady throughout the day while the upper portions of the climbs on the right side of the wall will be in the sun from Noon on. These routes are well bolted and well maintained. Bring along 10 quick draws some long slings and lockers for the top bolts and a 50 meter rope and you'll be set. All routes are single pitch with the descent via rappels from the anchors.
The Dr. Seuss / Prototype wall is located across the creek from the parking lot. Follow the spring flow down the creek towards the Pedernales River. Hike down past the Sex Cave and Sex Wall and cross the creek to the left at your first possible convenience. Follow this trail around past Teva Slab(a detached 25 ft. limestone block) on your right and another large limestone boulder on your left. The trail winds back to the left and dead-ends in a grove of trees and into the Prototype Wall. The Dr. Seuss portion of the wall is 50 ft. to the left on the flank of the Prototype wall.

: Reimer's Ranch
: Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall
One of the best 5.10 climbs at Reimer's. Prototype is the right most of two lines that share the first bolt (the other is Mas Cerveza, 5.11) just to the right of the shallow dihedral at the base of Clone Call. The start overhangs a little - pull up onto a bulge using a good flake. Be sure to clip the first bolt before making any moves up the bulge or you could deck if you slipped. Look for a good two finger pocket with the right hand while you pinch with the left. Pull through the bulge to ...[more] Browse More Classics in TX
