Hueco wall

  • Grade context: US
  • Ascents: 11




The climbs at Hueco tend to be slopey, technical, and long compared to other walls. There are a couple of steep options as well. Bring a second rope for longer routes.

Note, the numbers in-front of a few of the route names align with numbers from a few old topos from the 90s and 00s. The numbers have been left to help distinguish the many unnamed routes, and so they can be referenced to those old guides.

There have been many new lines bolted between the older routes. If anyone has info on these new routes please add them.


Starting from the parking area at (50.90149, -116.43453) take the obvious trail past the outhouse up into the forest. After an steeper section at the beginning the trail levels off before the climbs. The path ends facing the large pillar with '8 J.P.' to '11 The Edge'.

Descent notes

Note that a few of these climbs are 45m long and may not have a rap station half way, so you may need two ropes to get back down.
