Hueco Tanks

Posted on 05. Feb, 2009 by in News

I just returned from Hueco and although I had a good time, I didn’t manage one hard problem. While this was certainly frustrating, it comes with the territory. As much time as I spend climbing there are always peaks and valleys. I went with Brian Camp and Andre Defelice, who just returned from Europe. Andre is a very talented young climber and managed Crown of Aragorn V13. Later he walked over to Rumble in the Jungle, made quick work of that, and Camper followed suit with good style. We all agreed that Rumble is solid at V11 with this new beta. With my poor climbing settled in I took the opportunity to take some photos of my fellow climbers.

One day we stopped to check out a great new problem put up by Justin Alarcon called The Princess Diaries V6, on East Mountain. The problem climbs out a massive roof on sculpted holds, finishing on easy climbing over a bad landing.

The last day I went on tour with some friends I hadn’t seen in a while. Good times.

    Good stuff as always on your blog. Nice to see people are still sending problems in Hueco–both old and new. You seem pretty keen on getting bouldering FA facts straight, so I thought I’d let you know that Princess Diaries was actually done about 10 years ago and called Dirty Dishes. It started in the hole on the other boulder to the left, came out the hole onto the roof and straight out. Definitely a cool problem. Also, Garth MIller did a problem that went out the hole and traversed left on iron rock crimpers. I think he called it Ironing Time.

    Jamie,
    Been thinking about going to Hueco over Spring Break. Is it true that the weather there is warm already??

    I enjoy your blog and I check it periodically. Thanks for the work and photos. Greatly appreciate it.

    The weather is almost always too warm in March. Late Feb could be good although its probably too warm as well. The rock is a bit rough in Hueco and cold temperatures always help.
