This is what the Texas Mountaineers Climbing Club says about climbing at Baldy Point:
"Types of Climbing:
Toproping, lead climbing, and rappelling. With over 80 routes listed in the now out of print guide, the climbs at Quartz Mountain include low-angle faces, high-angle faces, cracks, chimneys, and offwidths. The majority of the climbs fall in the 5.7 to 5.11+ range, but there are a few 5.5s for warming up and some serious 5.12s for those days when you're feeling extra hard-core. (Beware, the routes at Quartz tend to be run-out, so all routes at all grades should be taken seriously and should only be attempted by leaders who are solid at that grade level.) "
