    The area - Hueco Tanks - is home to the best bouldering in the Western Hemisphere and is one of America's most popular Fall, Winter, and Spring cragging destinations. The guide describes more than muscle-blasting, vein-bursting, hide-ripping boulder problems, lead climbs from bumbly stroll-ups to big-number ego-boosting month-long Reviews: 1. Hueco Tanks.

    Hueco Tanks allows only 70 daily visitors to its North Mountain; the remaining areas are available exclusively via tour guide.

We recommend two of the later: John Sherman's "Hueco Tanks, Climbing and Bouldering Guide, Second Edition", ChockStone Press (out of print and somewhat hard to find) and the new "Hueco Tanks: The essential guide to America's bouldering Mecca" by Matt Wilder, Wolverine Publishing (available at the Rock Ranch).

    Overview: Hueco Tanks, Texas. Hueco (pronounced ‘whey-co’) is literally the Spanish translation for hollows, because the area is full of water-holding depressions, or what we as climbers call, huecos in the Tanks is also the birthplace of the bouldering grade rating system (‘V’) and a bouldering mecca that attracts professional and recreational climbers alike.   Hueco is divided into four mountains: North, East, East Spur and West. Each mountain offers great climbing, so how do you choose? First thing to consider is that East, East Spur, and West mountains require guides. Either you need a friend who is a registered guide to the area or you can book a commercial tour guide.
