Featured Route For Hueco Wall

: ... : Hueco Wall
Awkward, reachy and tricky start. Clip first bolt, then perhaps traverse a couple feet to the right, fight for decent feet under the shallow overhang, then toss up to a thin vertical flake. Step back and clip second bolt (sequential and pumpy!) and pull up past the second small roof. Might be inviting to clip the bolt on Wipeout en route to the second bolt on this route, and this would be a safer option than whipping off whilst trying and failing to clip the second bolt.

Someone left a pair of prescription sunglasses at the rock. We moved them to big hueco near the start of Moss Monkey.

Is it possible to access the anchors from the top to set top ropes?

Climbed here this week. Fun climbs but a machete is needed to trim back the bushes on the final part of the approach from the creekbed. You can access the anchors from the top to set top ropes.

Ya, the approach trail really needs some trimming. The wall is shady until about 2 pm (plus or minus) when the sun creeps on to routes on the right first, and makes its way across the wall.
The wall is still chossy, but all the bolts we used looked good.
My overall rating of the area is "ok". Good wilderness setting, bouldery movement, slightly overhanging rock, interesting and challenging climbing, most likely you'll have the place to yourself. Approach is a bit long, wall is a bit short and chossy.

@Jeff Kashou: Not sure if anyone has answered you yet, but, yes, you can walk up on top of Hueco wall to set up anchors.

Finally had a chance to check this place out. I've been really excited about it since that area has been one of my favorites since I was a kid. Anyway, I managed to get a little lost while trying to locate the wall. The reason for this was because I typed the coordinates from this site into my iPhone, since I roughly knew where I was going, and it led me further down the trail than it should have. You can see this yourself if you click on the link to see a map of the wall, the "A" marker is the only thing that showed up on the phone, so I went to that oblong wall that is similarly shaped just past it. After a lot of bushwhacking, I decided to turn back and climb up top the peak where that marker led me and saw the Hueco Wall behind me. Once I retraced my steps it was smooth sailing from there. I would add that for anyone who goes looking for this wall to know that if you cross the water pipe on the main trail that has hash marks hammered into it, you have just barely gone too far and turn around, do not continue down the hill.
I TR soloed for a little bit and then turned back since the weather didn't look too promising. The wall was a lot of fun, a little chossy, but to be expected for how remote this spot is. Doing the approach solo with a pack full of too much gear definitely wore me down a bit, but it was absolutely worth it for the views and great climbing. Thanks for the info about the anchors guys, it was really helpful.
