Challenge yourself with a world-class bouldering site, popular with many across the world, at one of the most historic sites in Texas. Just a 45-minute drive east from downtown El Paso, Hueco Tanks, known for its ancient pictographs and its use as a stagecoach stop along the old Butterfield Trail, is a haven for rock climbers from around the world. Climbing, hiking, and guided tours are held regularly.

Bouldering does not require a rope or safety net, simply problem-solving skills and stamina. The North Mountain is perfect, however can get very full, hence the need for reservations. Other mountains are forbidden without a guide, and camping is also available. Access is limited to control crowd size, and reservations are strongly recommended, even for daytime visits.
