Paradise on the Brazos has now been closed again.
From the landowners facebook......
Paradise on the Brazos will officially close down climbing & tent camping permanently @ the end of today. We have decided to go another direction after 13 years. We have a bunch of people to thank for making climbing happen @ POB. A big thanks to David & Carol Michael for having the vision & putting in the first climbs & a bunch of hard work. Thanks to the late Jimmy Forrester & the late Kirk Holiday for all they did. Thanks to Thomas & Shana Martin, Keith Reed, Mark Pell, Mark Hyde, Ryan Ray, Mark Maddy & James Siros for the website. Thanks to all the people I left out & to the honest climbers. It's been a great 13 years & have made a bunch of friends in the climbing community but the time has come to shut it down. Times change & people change. Please spread the word, don't want anyone to drive out here & have to be turned away. Will put up no trespassing signs & anyone attempting to go back there will be dealt with accordingly. Thanks.
The reason we are closing POB to climbing & tent camping is we have leased our ranch to a large mining Company & they will be mining limestone & it will turn into a large quarry. The Company doesn't want anyone in there because they will be blasting & it will loosen the rock. Hope that answers some questions.
