Description 

This is the East Face of Buzzard's Roost where the classic climbs Texas Crude and Fear of Flying can be found. Area offers shade and is often quiet due to length of approach, but worth the mellow hike.

Getting There 

Continue east (climber's right) for a good distance around the base of Buzzard's Roost past the Southeast Face found above Sandy Creek. Look for a slight climber trail that leads up the hill and meanders to the wall.

This is one of the most infamous central Texas climbs, and rightly so. Fear of Flying is a continuous crack in a beautiful dihedral that widens up top. Most choose to lieback this beast, which makes the climbing easier, but adds an interesting challenge when placing big gear....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
