Hueco Tanks

Paul Robinson has started his annual trip to Hueco off right, with sends of Esperanza V14, Slashface V13 as well as the second ascent of Sôl Adûnâmentum. Nick Duttle had suggested hard V14 for the latter but Paul repeated it very quickly and has suggested low end V12. I am sure there will be more to come from Paul (perhaps a flash go on Nagual?) Paul is currently the #1 boulderer in the world according to www.8a.nu
There remains alot of potential in Hueco. Some obvious projects that come to mind would be climbing Esperanza from the start of Right Martini (and of course reversing Left Martini into Esperanza) There is also a more independent line to the left of Esperanza that has some very small holds on. Last year Chris Sharma reversed L. Martini into R. Martini and called it (appropriately) Too Many Martini’s. This is probably in the 5.14d range. I remember checking out a wall near Dragonfly with several potential V14-V15 power problems on it. There is a very hard and cool sit start to Dave Graham’s The Land Before Time V13, which is on East Mountain uphill from Uncut Yogi. Not far away is the A-frame, steep overhang with more potential. I will be leaving for the South with Angie on Jan. 2 where we will be for a few weeks and then off to Hueco Tanks. Here are some pics from previous trips. Enjoy.
