Indian Springs hosts a variety of different climbs. There is a lot of potential for new routes and most existing lines are easily top roped. There are several overhanging cracks that may even be in the 5.12 range.
Before the park road turns back to the right to make its loop, there is a long pullout on the right. Park here. From the pullout, look at the cliff to your left, and notice the spot with a high concentration of big cedar trees. This is Indian Springs.
Option 1: hike west along the top of the cliff until you discover a 5th class downclimb.

Another great canyon climb. The rock quality of this route is superb. (until the very top at least). The crack ranges from big hands to off width and is an excellent test piece for a variety of crack climbing skills. Access the lower ramp by either climbing straight up the leftmost crack, or start on the right and traverse over. Continue up the crack in the dihedral to the top. At the top, either top out by climbing the choss straight up, or traverse right.Perhaps the best option would be to pre...[more] Browse More Classics in TX
