Alexandra Ballester deciphers Honeycomb.
Limestone Cliffs up to ~25m. The rock varies from excellent blue rock to blocky choss. Be cautious pulling on anything that seems loose, it probably is.
North facing so it does get SOME shade in the summer but the sun sneaks in when it's high in the sky. It can be COLD in the winter but the sun is easy to walk to to warm up. Each of the areas are really all part of one semicontinuous cliff band. Climbers would refer to different distinct areas as a "wall" and the practice stuck. Think of each "wall" area in the Euro sense of sectors on a larger wall.
Star Ratings are based on climbs ONLY at Med Wall. Don't think for a second that a 4 star route here will rank up there with a 4 Star route in the Valley or Smith Rock.
THIS AREA IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. ACCESS IS BEING WORKED ON. THIS WILL BE UPDATED WHEN THINGS CHANGE

Originally a TR setup by unknown parties and locally known as "Honeycomb". Lead bolts were added later as was a different name - aka "Loopy Likes it on Top" ...Head up the lower angle slab past 2 bolts. At the base of the headwall, clip a bolt on the face to protect you making the clip above the lip. Steep climbing up and left through SWISS CHEESE Rock leads up and right to a Crack before toping out with some face climbing....[more] Browse More Classics in TX
