Crag features

Hueco tanks is one of the best and most famous bouldering areas in the world. It is home to some of the worlds best problems, much filmed and photographed and is a stomping ground for some of the worlds best. The birth place of the V grade.

The heavily featured rock provides every type of hold imaginable. Bring your big guns though as many of the problems are steep or overhanging. The Hueco's that give the area it's name are actually pools of water formed in the rock over millions of years. They lie not only on the horizontal faces of the rock but also the vertical and form many of the holds.

Access can be a tricky, and at times, a confusing issue. Only the North Mountain is open for unguided access and even this is limited to a certain number of people. East and West mountain are 'guide only' access and even this has further limitations. Visit to contact guides and set up tours of East, West or the East spur.
