Description

Hueco Tanks State Park in West Texas has some of the best bouldering in the world, featuring some of the country’s most famous boulder problems. It is also a precious repository of ancient Native American rock art, and every trip to Hueco involves delightful hunts for the famous “masks.” This is volume 1 of our second generation of Hueco bouldering guides. Much has changed at Hueco since the original 2004 edition :  the discovery of new rock art led to changes in access, there are great new places to stay, and new problems abound! This comprehensive guide covers 850 problems at self-guided North Mountain (200 new problems since the last edition). For guided-only areas (West Mountain, East Mountain, and the East Spur), there is also a 20+ page “greatest-hits” section, full of maps and great imagery. We also include a thorough guide to navigating the park regulations and the tour-guide system so you can get the most out of your visit. Jason Kehl put in an incredible effort to update and beautify Matt Wilder’s original work for this new edition!
