Edgeworks at Hueco Tanks  
  By Sean Stidham - Edgeworks Member
Spring break. To most this is a time to forget about work/school, party, or just be lazy. Not for climbers; spring break is the perfect time to head out to your favorite local crag, or road trip to a new destination and explore. We opted for the latter.
  March 22nd, myself and nine others embarked on a journey down to the bouldering Mecca 'Hueco Tanks'. With its amazing colors, features, and ancient paintings, Hueco by far exceeded any of our expectations. Knowing we only had a week, we hit classic after classic, one by one checking off our tick list. As the week went by we all experienced proud and frustrating moments. The  
  last few days we ran around frantically trying to finish our projects before our time was up. We finished off the week with a guided tour of east mountain and east spur, by our awesome and knowledgeable guide Chuck.  

As the week came to an end we were sad to leave, but definitely ready for a shower! We had thrashed ourselves for a week and it showed. We exchanged war wounds and sends, and agreed it had been an awesome trip. Despite some hoops you have to jump through in order to climb at Hueco, it is definitely one of the most amazing destinations you can visit. I encourage anyone, climber or not, to visit Hueco Tanks if given the opportunity. My tick list for next trip is already started.

Cheers! - Sean
