What we're about

Texas Rock Climbing is a group of friends from all over Texas that get together to go climbing. Several different Texas Rock Climbing mailing lists and Meetup Groups have been combined here to provide one central place for Texas Rock Climbers to get plugged into the community.

We welcome EVERYONE and have events for aspiring climbers, beginners, sport, trad, and multi-pitch climbers.

Most of the time we climb at crags in Texas but we often organize trips to other states and countries.

We hope to continue to centralize and strengthen the many small regional climbing groups and create a central location where climbers can find climbing partners, gatherings and trips.

We help with the replacement of old climbing hardware to ensure the safety of Texas climbing.

We are active in opening new climbing areas and maintaining the ones that we have.

Join us on Meetup here to see what's coming up!

Tuesday Night Climb: Gus Fruh

Barton Creek Greenbelt - Gus Fruh Access

All are welcome. You should have your own harness and shoes. There are many easy climbs at Gus Fruh (see https://www.mountainproject.com/area/105991035/gus-fruh). Bring water. Bring a headlight for the hike out. Depending on turnout we often go out and eat dinner afterwards, usually somewhere vegan/carnivore and dog friendly. If you want to come earlier than the posted time add a comment and see if anybody else can make it out earlier. Make a list of climbing skills to learn at https://skilltaco.com/skills/list/?tag=rock_climbing

Thursday Night Climbing at New Wall

Tacodeli

New Wall has mostly intermediate to advanced sport climbing though there are a couple in the 5.7 range. New climbers are welcome, there is always someone who can point out a route or hang a rope for you! You’ll need harness, shoes, belay device, and water - stick clip recommended. Park on the street near the Taco Deli at 1500 Spyglass, where it meets Barton Skyway. Walk East to enter the greenbelt, heading downhill until you hit the wide main trail. Turn right and walk upstream just under .5 miles. See https://www.mountainproject.com/area/105953859/new-wall for route descriptions. New Wall gets morning sun so it is never cold but should be a moderate temperature in the evening. This is a popular spot, hope to see you there!

Tuesday Climb at New Wall

1788 Spyglass/Barton Skyway

New Wall is a bit hard and not too beginner friendly, but is very high quality. Bring a headlight for the hike out. We meet at the wall (meetup location is the trailhead, but we don't actually meet there). All are welcome. You should have your own harness and shoes. We generally eat dinner afterward at somewhere with Mexican food and Margaritas, or at least a dog friendly porch and vegan/carnivore options.
