About Paradise on the Brazos:

This beautiful area, located on a bend of the Brazos River in North Texas, has a selection of over 90 short, bolted routes, with the potential for many more. Bolting began in November of 2002. Some of the routes have loose rock on them, so be careful. There is an overhung cave with the first 5.12 named Columbia, bolted Feb. 1 ,2003. POB is full of several good boulders. Most of the bolted routes now are vertical, and up to 5.12 in difficulty.
Nearest town or city: Graham
Directions: follow the directions to the town of Mineral Wells, by way of 180. Just west of town, head north on 337, towards Graham. After about 25 miles on this road, and just after you cross the county line, look for the open gate across the highway from a gravel pit. Make sure you stop at the house to pay the $7, and to fill out liability forms. Primitive camping for $6, or stay at the ranch's bed and breakfast. Cold shower for $5.
