About Hueco:

Hueco Tanks is composed of irregular masses of syenite porphyry which were eroded over the years creating unique rock formations and some of the best bouldering in the world!
People have been visiting Hueco Tanks for over 10,000 years! They have sought shelter from the elements and from enemies; they found food and water and worshiped gods in Hueco. They left their imprint in a fragile desert environment that today is still a place of worship and interest to many groups. In 1975 Mike Head came across this obscure pile of rock in the Texas desert. While he and his pals established routes in the area, they also foresaw the potential of climbing on all of the rock faces—even the smaller steep ones. Since then people have been addicted to bouldering in Hueco Tanks State Park. Word spread about this bouldering Mecca and curious climbers made the trek to the east El Paso site. The early days of unlocking Hueco's bouldering potential brought many visitors. Hueco was loved too much by all and abused by some as a result restrictions were put into place to protect the delicate landscape and rock art. East Mountain, West Mountain, and The East Spur are all guided access only areas. We provide you access to these historic bouldering destinations.
