Hand Beyond Wall is the last climbing area on the Dead Cats side of Reimer's Ranch. Once you pass the T-Roofic Wall and Tit For Tom areas, the wall becomes progressively shorter until it disappears all together. All of the routes are short -- typically three bolts on the side closer to Tit For Tom and two bolts farther to the left. Almost all of the climbs are in the 5.9 to 5.11 range. Typically not as crowded as other areas at Reimers.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail down through the canyon and turn right as for Dead Cats. Continue along the wall past the gully between Arbor and Rhetoric Walls, the orange roofs on the T-Roofic Wall, and the long, low roof on Tit For Tom Wall. Deception Pass is the first climb on Hand Beyond Wall. Look for a three-bolt route in a clean dihedral with a roof about half way up. The remaining climbs are all to the left. At the far left end of the Hand Beyond Area you can hike up the slope and head northeast to a dirt road. The dirt road will take you back to the parking area.

Taller climbers can reach up and clip the first bolt while standing on the boulder. Medium- and large-sized holds up the slightly overhanging face. Difficulty seems consistent all the way up....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX

First bolt on Ten Foot Pole is tightly torqued, but the hanger is loose and turns easily. It could probably use some maintenance. I don't know who to contact. Thank you.
