Despite the fact this area contains some excellent walls and routes, it is not quite as popular as other areas such as Seismic or New Wall. This area is well shaded.
The closest entrance is located at the Gus Fruh entry point for the Greenbelt. Heading west from Lamar on Barton Springs Rd., take a left onto Barton Hills Dr. Follow this road south until you reach the sign for Gus Fruh entry point. Park on the street and take the trail down to Barton creek. Cross the creek and take a right on the trail on the far side. The first wall that one encounters will be Gus Fruh, followed by Kingdom of Ging
and finally Guide's Wall
(Kingdom of Ging
is notable for its large cave about 7' high that runs the length of the base of the wall).

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

Favorite climbing spot on the Green Belt. Shady and cool with a very high quality of rock. Tons a hard bouldering, sport climbing, top roping and even a couple of easy cracks to get your Trad on if you really want.
