Let's go climbing at Texas Canyon

Meet me either at the parking lot at Rush Canyon Road and Forest Route 5N15 at 5 PM or later at the crag. We will be climbing till sun-down. Bring your headlamps to get back to the cars.

Routes from 5.6 and up can be climbed either TR or lead, i.e. there are fun climbs for all levels from beginners to experts.

Helmet is highly recommended because of small loose rocks.

 

DIRECTIONS

Exit CA14 at Sand Canyon, go north on Sand Canyon for 2.0 miles and turn right on Sierra, after 4.4 miles turn left on Rush Canyon at a sign for Rowher Flat OHRV. Follow Rush Canyon Road for 1.6 miles to a gate on your left, park there and pass the gate on Forest Route 5N15 for 0.2 miles, then turn right on a very steep and slippery trail down to the crag. Go around the left side of the first rock formation and follow the trail up to a shady canyon. Rush Canyon Road is a dirt road once you are up in the hills.

    Yes, Aysel isn't on the meet up site but would appreciate having someone to carpool with. I know a lot of you may pass by that junction on your way. Let me know via [masked] if you can help out :) Aysel ice climbs and does wicked trad, if you haven't met her yet :)

    Is there anyone who could carpool from Roxford St exit 5 and 14 junction? Aysel wanted to know. She's going to teach me how to do a Tyrolean traverse someday! Let me know, and I can get back to her...I don't believe she's on the MeetUp site yet...

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
