Hueco Tanks Rock Climbing Photo Gallery

A Gallery of Climbing Photographs from Hueco Tanks


Hueco Tanks State Historical Park, a collection of three granite mountains rising above the desert east of El Paso, Texas, offers some of America’s best bouldering and climbing on its soaring rock walls and scattered boulder gardens. The park, with a warm, dry climate, is regarded as America’s premier winter climbing area. The 250-foot-high Front Side cliff offers lots of classic and fun climbing routes. Check out my on-line guide to Hueco’s routes. It’s the excellent and varied boulders, however, that bring rock jocks to Hueco in the winter. Here you’ll find hundreds of boulder problems for climbers from beginner to ace. It’s a great place to roam about and discover the joy of movement, the harmony of the natural world, and the essence of the bouldering experience.
