Barton Creek Greenbelt

Barton Creek GreenbeltThe Barton Creek Greenbelt is the closest location to Austin for climbing at about eight minutes from downtown. Nestled on the banks of the Barton Creek (when there is water), this climbing destination is a great location to learn especially if your time or transportation strapped. Seismic Wall and Gus Fruh wall are favorites for us to teach at, though there are many others to choose from.
