Lake Brownwood Guidebook

22 03 2011

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!

Its almost unknown outside of the Abilene area, but near Brownwood, Texas is a small lake with some quality bouldering.  One problem in particular has been the subject of attempts for several years.  It is an tall overhanging block with small crimps and a horrible landing.

This past week, Scott Chapman of Camp Eagle and Eric Gentry of AbileneClimbers made the first and second ascents of Jack in the Box.  The following video is the second ascent.

Visit AbileneClimbers for more photos and a recap of the send.
