Great climbing at harder grades than anywhere else on the Greenbelt. Best in late fall to late winter when there's no humidity. Expect to see people (not necessarily crowds) on the weekends and certain nights of the week but most of the time it's not too crowded. A bit polished as are most of the routes that see a lot of action on the Greenbelt but it's climbing and there's some good moves and positions as well as power climbs to be done here!

Shock the Monkey 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  TX : Barton Creek Greenbelt : The Great Wall
This route is a linkup: begin with the first two bolts of Power Monkey (PM) then finish leftward on Tunnel Vision (TV). This is a higher quality route than PM in my humble opinion, and these days it sees more action than PM. After the PM crux, I traversed on the jugs just below the third bolt of TV and then clipped said bolt. There was definite ground fall potential. It appears you could move left earlier to the flat ledge below the second bolt on TV. A long runner on that bolt would prevent...[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
