This is a cliff with tire sized huecos. Unlike some of the other sandstone cliffs at the canyon that have broken down in the sun, Hueco's sand stone is generally hard. It offers some excellent (for the canyon) climbs from 5.7 to about 5.11. A few of the routes go trad, while the rest can easily be top roped via trees at the top.
At the moment, and in the foreseeable future, this area is closed. Please refrain from climbing on this cliff. It's mostly choss anyway. I have been informed by a friend that the State Park is giving tickets to everyone who is caught climbing here as the area is on private property and the landowner has voiced their complaints. Don't climb here; we want to maintain a positive relationship with State Park.

This is my second favorite trad line in the canyon. Note, a fall off the start could pull you and your belayer off the ledge so it is a good idea to set up a belay anchor. The 5.9 grading is pretty stiff and should not be taken lightly. Though the rock here is pretty solid it is still soft sandstone and a fall could very likely pull gear. Make sure you are very confident at the grade before attempting. Follow the crack up and left (crux) under an overhang then climb through a keyhole at the top....[more] Browse More Classics in TX
