  • Description 

    The largest of the climbing areas, the South Rim Wall was named in tribute to the spectacular South Rim of Big Bend National Park. Accessed from a substantial shelf via the Main Wall, you're already high above the river before you even start climbing. More exposure, more scenery, and all around great Texas limestone.

    Getting There 

    Access is via the Main Wall. Much of this area has a metal cable bolted along it for safety. Count the anchor bolts holding this cable as you travel along to know where you are.
