We have three gyms in the area:

Stoneworks (110' climbs inside and outside grain silos - I-35 and
           Beltline)
Exposure   (24' climbs with friendly staff - Midway and Trinity Mills)
Dyno Rock  (30' climbs, good overhanging stuff - somewhere in Arlington)

I think Dyno Rock is closed to the public for most of the day on
Saturdays. Stoneworks gets a lot of tourons and first timers, so the
staff there is *really* tight-assed. (At least, I think that's the
connection.) Both Stoneworks and Exposure have plenty of bouldering.
The routes at Dyno Rock seem a little farther apart and don't connect
up into continuous traverses as well. If you go alone, it's usually
pretty easy to get a belay in any of these places.

If I'm in town when you're here, maybe we could hook up.

"...sublime real rock"??? C'mon, this is Dallas!

Try Stone Works Climbing Gym in Carrollton, right off Beltline and I-35.  
It used to be a grain silo or something and is 110' feet tall.  Pretty cool!
