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.
