Description 

A handful of formations on the West side of the Franklin Mountains. The climbs are about 25ft tall +/- and there's about enough climbing to where you can can send everything in a matter of a week. The rock quality is excellent and the routes vary from 5.4 to 5.12. This area gets fairly crowded on the weekends and you have to pay if you don't own a Texas State Park Pass. It's $4 per adult and free for kids 13 and under. There's camping available as well. For topos ask for one at the ranger station or download some at vcrux.com. Park hours are 8am-5pm.

Getting There 

From interstate 10 exit and head East on Woodrow Bean Transmountain Dr. also known as the 375 and head up the road 3.3 miles. Take a left at Tom Mays Park Access Rd. There's a brown sign that says Tom Mays Park. When you get up to the ranger station you can ask them where the climbing is located in the park.

Mona was the first route I tried to lead. Took a fall and my nerves got in the way of finishing the lead. Climbed it on top rope. Loved this climb.
