The climbing here is extremely varied, and there is truly something for everyone, at every grade. Due to it’s abundance of extremely steep and physical climbs, Hueco Tanks is also an excellent area to use as a training ground to get dead strong. It’s truly an amazing place. Hueco Tanks is also a sacred place for numerous Native American tribes. The park is filled with thousand year old cave paintings and even ancient burial grounds. Many Native Americans still consider Hueco Tanks something similar to what we’d think of as a church, and even as a cemetery. As such, care has been taken to balance preservation with access, and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has established rules for use of the park.
