Lost Climbing of Texas

5 03 2012

Recently the Central Texas Mountaineers out of Austin held their monthly meeting where they discussed the “lost” crags of Texas, areas where climbing historically existed but to where access is tenuous or non-existent. The presentation was posted on Erockonline.com and you can view the slides HERE.

The author, Joel Schopp, is a CTM officer and Access Fund regional coordinator. He’s looking for a few good folks to champion specific crags to see if we can bring them back into the climbing fold.
