Fun limestone bouldering. Walls range from 12 to 30 feet in height and have unlimited opportunities for pocketed climbing. The rock is solid and there is a variety of grades making it a place for all levels of climbers. The lake is also a good place to cool off on warm days.
The cliff band overlooks Belton Lake and has routes that get sun and shade, though mostly shade.
A good resource for the area can be found at Dr. Topo.
