Climbing Courses at Reimers Ranch
Reimer’s Ranch climbing has happened at this park since the early 90s when the Reimer family was gracious to allow climbing on their beautiful land. Set on the banks of the Pedernales River and cut by one of the most lush springs in the Texas Hill Country. Eventually the family was ready to move on and sought out the Travis County Parks system and this climbing location has been under their ownership since 2005. Also, in that same purchase was a new area, called The North Shore where tons of new climbing has become available in recent time. The climbing at Reimer’s is some of the best limestone cragging in the country.
Having climbs varying from easy to world-class hard, this locale tests a first-time climber or the pro alike. The Central Texas Mountaineers maintain hardware so you can be rest assured that you are clipping onto good bolts and chains.
Rock-About has been guiding and climbing at Reimer’s Ranch since the very beginning. Also, many of the routes at this park have been bolted by RA folks. We pride ourselves on knowledge of this awesome crag and ability to teach our clients how to climb on limestone successfully. After a fun day of climbing you can enjoy their many trails on a mountain bike, fish for small mouth bass in the Pedernales, and take a dip in the river to cool off in summer. The beauty, climbing, and a guided trip with Rock-About make this a worthwhile adventure for everyone.
