ATTENTION: This area is CURRENTLY CLOSED TO CLIMBING. The landowner has asked that people respect private property and NOT TRESPASS.
Climbers are working to restore access but EVERY CLIMBER is asked to respect the landowners concerns over liability at this time. Let's put out best foot forward and show we can be good stewards so that, hopefully in the future, this valuable resource can be reopened.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
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
Mountain Project's determination of some of the classic, most popular, highest rated routes for Medicine Wall:
Probably the 2nd best line on NT after Bow Legged. MIGHT even be the best. Head up past the cave and into a shallow groove past 2 bolts before pulling onto the grassy ledge. (Some gardening should clean that ledge up). Pull past the bulge, onto easier ground heading up and slightly right towards the base of the overhanging, left facing corner. Climb up the corner on edges and pockets before reaching a small crack near the top....[more]Browse More Classics in TX
