I was initially struck by the beauty of the area, an oasis in the deserts of greater El Paso, as much as the fun, gymnastic style of movement. This area put my foot trickery to the test, forcing me to expand my heel-toe cam skills like never before. Hueco was everything I had hoped it would be and more, which is a lot to say considering I’ve been hearing about this place for over a decade. With Hueco as my first stop I’m feeling stronger than ever and with sends of my first and second V13s behind me my confidence is soaring. In all, I spent three weeks sampling the best Hueco had to offer. It was great to finally experience the fabled Hueco Iron-rock, engorge myself with El Pasito burritos, reunite with old friends, and make new connections. I’m sure this will be but the first of many trips to these majestic boulders.
