I am a big fan of climbing so I’ve looked for somewhere I could go climbing from Dallas. Not that much choice but you can go in Austin or in Arkansas. I think they are the two closest spot where you can have fun routes.
With my climbing group, we went up to Arkansas, in horseshoe canyon in early October, I went back in late November for a second weekend of climbing. The temperatures were still okay but cooler during evenings and night (32/34° F – 0/2° C).
Beautiful background, nice area to camp and to climb.
You can find everything you need in the camp, toilet and water, shower with hot water and a small store where you can buy few climbing things.
The area to climb is important over 300 routes and provide many different level of climbing from beginners to expert.
