I’ve heard great things about that place! Would definitely be up for going.

In other news, I checked out the local rock gym in OKC and it’s FREAKING
SWEET! 90 feet tall with outdoor climbing, too! Made of repurposed grain
silos. See here:

Monster Rock sounds awesome. I'd definitely be down for checking that out.
I'm away next weekend, but maybe in February?

I agree, Monster Rock looks very cool and I'd love to try it out.

Howdy,

Before you take a trip out to monster rock you should check the guide 
book. From my recollection their is nothing easy there. Lowest rating is a
5.9 and whole bunch of 5.10s,11,&12s. Let me know how it is though!

Yeah definitely sounds like a slightly harder area, but I think several of
us are working 9s and low 10s now. Might be a good place to work on
leveling up!

---
*If you climb 5.9:* Mrock has three quality 5.6 - 5.8 warmups and six 5.9
main routes, probably four of them star-quality.  5.9 climbers new to
leading have complimented Mrock on the lack of runouts.  Five 5.10a's & b's
make good projects.

*If you climb 5.10*: Mrock has about ten star-quality routes and variations
in this grade, spread evenly across the four letter grades.  Don't overlook
the Insane Whisperings traverse.  It has two 5.10 variations, plus the
entire traverse can be worked bolt-to-bolt pulling no harder than 5.10d
cruxes.  (It's rated 5.11b due to the endurance to redpoint.)  Six 5.11a's
& b's make good projects.
