British boulderer Jon Partridge recently got back from a two week pre World Cup training trip to Hueco Tanks, Texas. Jon came back with a strong ticklist and a great little video.

Jon told UKC:

"I joined a super strong British and International crew including Chris Webb Parsons, Alex Puccio, Shauna Coxsey, James Garden, Katarina Saurwein (Austrian Team), Jorg Verhoeven (Dutch Team) and Remo Somme (Suisse Team).

For me Hueco is a truly incredible place. It tops the charts in almost every category you could think of; landscape, rock type, rock quality, amount of problems, types of problems, quality of lines, movement, food........the list goes on.

This was my third visit to Hueco and I love it. Despite all the reported access issues it is still easy to go to as long as you are prepared and understand the system. With this in mind I have made a compilation video of some of the problems I climbed whilst out there and the surrounding scenery, I hope it gives people psych to go."
