The Terminator Boulder and surrounding boulders offer a variety of fun problems from V1 to V-double digits. Most of these problems are very steep, climbing out cave roofs. The centerpiece of this area is actually a splitter hand and finger roof crack, that was once a popular 5.12+ toprope problem (though it now appears The Terminator hasn't seen action for quite some time). The boulders face south, so they tend to bake in the sun, although since these are caves, most of the problems are largely shaded, with only the topouts exposed to the sun.
This is a tricky spot to find. From the entrance station, park in the East Lot, and ascend the chains. Weave through the Small Potatoes, and the Big Time Boulders to arrive at the Nuclear Arms area. From the Grenade, descend for 50 feet to the south into the North Mountain Meadow. Locate a nice trail heading south through the meadow. The goal is the SE corner of the meadow. Climb onto rounded slabs, and descend to the south for about 40 feet to a large tier. Head West along this tier to the Terminator Boulder.

This line is probably on of the best V8's on North now that Mushroom Boulder is closed. There are no small holds so the difficulty comes from the amount of core and shoulder strength required.Start on the left side of the boulder with a left pinch and a right undercling. Make a big move to a good pocket, then a jug undercling. From here figure out some trickery to match in the gaston hueco and obtain the holds on "Serious Attitude Problem". From here keep it together for the tricky topout sh...[more] Browse More Classics in TX
