Hueco Tanks near El Paso, Texas is amongst some of the best bouldering you’ll find anywhere in the United States. For awhile it was the Mecca of Bouldering. According to this blog entry over at the Backcountry Blog it sounds like it’s still pretty outstanding.
The article is a nice little trip report on what to expect when you get to Hueco, what the facilities are like (They sound great to me!) and the difficulty of the problems in the area. (Hint: They’re not easy!) Sounds like it was a fun time, and a great place to visit.
I’ve lived in Texas for nearly two years now, and I still haven’t ventured out to the western portion of the state. Living in most states, it’s a three or four hour drive to just about anywhere, but in Texas you can’t get anywhere in that time. Seriously, for me to venture from Austin to El Paso would require a passport and two changes of planes.
