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.

Granite Gripper 2009

24 09 2009

Its that time of year once again, where the temperatures are perfect and the granite of Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is beckoning Texas climbers for probably the best community-oriented weekend of climbing in the state.  October 17 is the 18th Annual Granite Gripper, and if you’ve never been, you should go.  If you have gone, you should go again.

Even if you don’t feel like competing, its hard to find a better weekend anywhere in the state.  Check it the details at www.granitegripper.com
