The Southeast Face is the largest climbing area on Buzzard's Roost and home to the classic routes Eat and PG-13. The routes climb two opposing walls that form a large "dihedral." Three of the routes actually start back inside "caves" formed by the large boulders and make for good summer destinations when the rock everywhere else is too hot to touch. The Southeast Face also gets afternoon shade. The tops of the climbs can be reached by walking around the left side of PG-13 and scrambling up the slabs to the top.

Getting There 

See the directions to Buzzard's Roost. The two bolted lines, La Realidad and PG-13, will be the first couple of routes on the left. They make good landmarks together with the tree on top of Eat.

Eat is a fun crack climb that ascends the near vertical face just to the right of P.G. 13, and left of the corner formed by the intersection of the two walls. Look for a large tree at the top of the route. There are a series of three cracks that lace the face - a center crack, one to the right near the bottom, and one to the left near the top. The climb starts off as a good hand crack and then transitions to a couple of layback moves. Above the layback, jam more cracks to the top. The crux ...[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
