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
