!!! Attention All Boulderers! DON"T PUT TICK MARKS ON THE ROCK TO INDICATE HOLDS! If you are such a crappy climber that you can't send without a chalk mark, then stay home. Don't provide ammo for the anti-climber forces! looks best in W3C-compliant browsers such as FireFox - not in IE, which is non-compliant.

Thanks for visiting our website! Non-English translations of are now available: Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, French, German and Portuguese. We also have a copy of the Visitor Info in German.

If you are planning a climbing trip to Hueco, check out the Hueco Info and TPWD sections.

Opinions, politics, fiction, history, essays and various ranting can be found in the Spray section, written to appeal to freedom-loving, authority-questioning climbers with a taste for absurdity. Even if you have figured out how to work the present system and don't agree with our concerns about overly restrictive regulations, you might find something there to interest you.

Until recently, our position, shared by many other interested groups such as the Access Fund and the Central Texas Mountaineers, was that Hueco can protected and preserved without violating the rights of legitimate, responsible users. We no longer think that is possible. Big Government is in full control of Hueco and they will do whatever the f**k they want. Things might get better, they might get worse, but it really has almost no connection with climber complaints or "cooperation." If you like ramming your head against political walls over and over, have a field day ... but this site will not be of much use to you. Good Luck!
