The most popular areas are undoubtedly Hueco, Enchanted Rocks but many canyons and Limestone cliffs offer a break from the usual Texas rock.  You can find everything from trad to sport and lots of bouldering.  The state is huge so some parts of the Lone Star state leave climbers to resort to building and driving to areas can take a full day or more due to the sheer mass of this state.
