Dallas Sandstone?

30 05 2011

Correction, make that sandstone near-ish to Dallas.  Courtesy of the Five-Ten Climbing Blog, Ian Dory spills the beans about a new top secret crag within 2 hours drive of Dallas.

“…Jared & Ben have also been developing this new area 2 hours from Dallas (sorry to be vague BUT the location is a bit of a secret.) Well needless to say its a GOLDMIND- really an undeveloped HP40 with unbelievable fields of sandstone boulders.”

More than likely, this means another secret crag available only to an elite few and/or trespassing on someone else’s land where you’ll be chased off by the gun owning landowner or subject to criminal penalties.  And 2 hours drive puts you in Oklahoma, so who knows where it really is.  Sigh.

But here’s hoping that this area continues to develop into a public friendly climbing area for any and all regional climbers.  We need it.

Lake Brownwood Guidebook

Brought to you by Abilene Climbers, the very first published guide for the Lake Brownwood rocks.  Its a great little crag if you ever find yourself in the area, and any kind of effort to document and promote any Texas climbing is a worthwhile endeavor. Outstanding job gentlemen!
