If anyone can tell me of good climbs preferebly bolted. But ill settle for bouldering sites besides reb bluff because i camp there very frequently. If you can tell or better show me some good sites I have a secret spot that is bolted and still at its infancy, if you dont mind trespassing.

Are you talking about Madison Wall just off of the outer loop?

The only bolted routes I know of are at Enchanted Rock and in Austin at Reimer's and the Greenbelt. You might try posting on texasclimbers.com - you will probably get a bit more local help there. You can also try bloodyflapper.com for bouldering sites. Good luck :)

check up at texasclimbers.com
You'll get more info there.
Also, if you can get your hands on a copy of Texas Limestone II you can find some. Also, check with a local gym or Whole Earth Provision Company.
If not, see you in Austin.

You're also close to Continental Ranch which has numerous bolted routes, many of them longer than you will find anywhere else in Texas. Check out their website on the Texas page. Great place to climb!

I'll be in San Antonio the last week of July 25 to August 8.
Wouldn't mind getting out while I'm there.
Either local or E Rock or Austin

Lots of climbing in Ft. Davis mostly slab. Best climbing in Winter is Hueco Tanks. Near you..Reimer's ranch, lots of great climbing near Carlsbad New Mexico, check out Sitting Bull Falls. Quality limestone tuff heavily bolted by experts. Range from 5.10 to 5.14 one of the best places I have ever been. Worth the trip. Make it a weekend.

Just for the record, there is no such thing as limestone tuff. They are 2 separate rock types formed from 2 very different processes.

Ok, Sitting Bull Falls is in a limestone area, the actual climbing is on a rock that was formed, I think, but precipitated mineral deposits...at any rate, it it is very stable, although some locals have taken a crowbar and pried off numerous loose flakes. The thing I like about it is the easy access and the fact that it is in the shade....it gets reaaaaaaly hot there.
