Gus Fruh aka Fern Bar Area
This is the first wall that you encounter when approaching from the Gus Fruh entry point. Plenty of exceptional routes on a well shaded wall - a great place to climb on a hot Texas day. Most of the climbs are polished and lead to sloping top outs, making climbs in this area feel stiffer than their original grades.
Enter from the Gus Fruh Greenbelt entry point and cross the creek as soon as possible.

Climb up and to the left to some great holds and clip. First clip is pretty high so many stick clip it (about 15 feet off the deck). After the first clip there is one 5.10- move. After that move there is great ledges. Just continue up and to the right till you reach the top chains. Without the one 5.10a move it would probably be a 5.8 or 5.9. ...[more] Browse More Classics in TX

This is my favorite in-town crag. Great quality rock but beware of sandbagged routes. If you can't climb a 5.10a you'll have a tough time with anything here even the so-called 5.8s and 5.9s.
