Description 

Nolan River is a bouldering area tucked away along the nolan river near Blum Texas. While the guidebook(TX limestone bouldering) has most of the problems fairly stout (hard) there are some easier lines as well with a little bit of exploring of rocks. This area has still a bit of potential and is a safe-access area so far. Just be fairly quiet b/c there are homes above the cliff line. Quality rock, with more than a days worth of good stuff!

Getting There 

Highway 67 south to Cleburne. 174 south through Rio Vista. Left on FM 933. Cross bridge over Nolan River. Park. walk back across river to obvious cliff line.
