Climbing Festivus and Adopt-A-Crag

24 10 2009

So the Granite Gripper sounds like it was another great success.  All the info you could ever want is posted at erockonline.

For those that missed but that still want to take part in a great climbing weekend, check out Camp Eagle’s Climbapalooza coming up Dec 5-6.

Everytime they host an event you can be sure its going to be awesome.  The adventure races and mountain bike races they host out there are consistently ranked as top in the state, but for some reason the climbing community as a whole has been a little slow getting the point.

Prolific central Texas new-route-gurus  Tommy Blackwell, Dave Cardosa, Scott Harris, Greg Brooks, Tom Suhler, Luke Bowman, and Evan Jackson have all put up routes out there.  (You’ll see their names on many a route in Austin Rock and other area guidebooks.)

2-3 hours from Austin/San Antonio, 5ish from DFW.  You can pitch a tent, or rent a cabin, or bring an RV.  You can enjoy the river, the cliffs, the mountain bike trails, and more.  Think of it as a limestone version of Horseshoe Canyon Ranch, only in Texas.

All that to say: GO CLIMB AT CAMP EAGLE.

Here’s a quick lo-fi video of the latest 5.13 traverse put up out there:
