Some of the bouldering that can be found here is on public land immediately off the highway; however, the majority of the problems and the routes lie on private land, as does the majority of the rock in the area.

If you've explored the Davis Mountains region of West Texas, you've seen plenty of rock. As a climber, this is one of the most frustrating regions in the South, especially for a state the size of Texas, but lacking its fair share of publicly owned land. Point of Rocks, being at least partially accessible, is a site for sore eyes after driving through an area filled with potential. To truly sample Point of Rocks, one must cross several fallen fences. I guess that's perhaps better than crossing several "unfallen" fences.
If traveling south from Ft. Davis, head south on hwy. 17 for about 2 miles. Then, turn right (west) on hwy. 166 for 10 miles. P.O.R. sits next to and above a roadside picnic area. This area is impossible to miss.
I was out there this weekend messing around and saw two bolts on top of a big boulder. And as I hiked to the top of the area I looked down on the slab face and saw three anchors with rap rings. Not sure what was below it.
