Description 

The Hueco Cave is the warm-weather sister to the once-popular-but-now-off-limits Solstice Cave. Featuring very steep climbing up tiered roofs, the routes in the cave are long, pumpy and gymnastic. The left end of the cave features a beautiful though short wall of blue & gray streaked 110 degree limestone with small holds. The routes on this wall are short and savage.

Getting There 

Continue Southeast from the Mad Cow Wall. The Hueco Cave is the last and largest of the big caves on this cliff band. If you need to do any sketchy downclimbing, you've gone too far!

This isn't what you would call a "good" picture, but it gives you an idea of the steepness and rock quality.  The line on the right is Couch Potato, 12c, and the one on the left is Canadian Beef 13a?  The orange rock looks pretty chossy, but actually seems to be solid (enough).
