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.
