Description 

Shady for the most part, the main face of the boulder faces N and the Wall of Early Morning Light which sits up behind the main face of the boulder faces NE. This area is pretty secluded as there is not much else around here. A smattering of easier problems then good stuff in the V2 to V6 range and 99 Heroin Ballons V8+, which is off on its own. Most of the better problems are tall or have questionable landings, but some of the easier stuff has landings on the trail which is nice and wide as it passes the boulder.


Getting There 

Follow the trail around North Mtn towards East Mtn and at the point where the two are the closest, shortly before a bathroom on the left, there will be a large boulder on your right with a corridor that leads around the back of it. The WEML sits up behind the steep N face of this boulder, walk away from the wall and contour around to the right of the wall that you come to.

The Berzereker V6 7A  TX : Hueco Tanks : ... : Icarus Boulder
Thin and committing. The landing is a square just big enough for one pad with a 5' tall boulder on either side, you definitely don't want to be hitting the edges of either. Follow slashing seams with thin edges up to a horizontal that is followed left to the top. Crimpy moves on holds that you can never really pull straight down on and bad feet take you up past one hold that looks spooky. Finish the difficulties with a slightly terrifying deadpoint to the thin horizontal crack that is followed o...[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
