...Hueco Tanks. I grew up in Texas without having ever heard of this magical mystery fun land. Now that I climb, and especially now that I'm moving back to West Texas in May, I've been told that I should be punched in the face if I don't make it a priority to get out to Hueco. That being said, I've never really been into bouldering or overcrowded climbing locales, but maybe Hueco will change my mind.
I'd love to go with someone who knows the place and is willing to let me climb the fun easy stuff. I don't send a whole lot over v3 on the slopers of the Southeast, but I do like a fun climb.
"What's that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? -- It's the too-huge world vaulting us away, and it's goodbye. ...but we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies."
--Jack Kerouac, "On the Road"
