The Big Time Boulder. This is the view upon first...

Some areas require a guide.


The Big Time is a cluster of large boulders near the summit of North Mountain. The size and configuration of the boulders provides for nearly all-day shade on most problems, making this a great warm weather destination. Due to the size of these boulders, most of the lines are long. The rock quality is excellent.

Getting There 

Beginning from the East Parking Lot, wind up towards "The Chains". Hike along the chains to a flat area where the chains terminate. Head due South for ~50 feet, then weave through the Small Potatoes boulders. A small open area is reached, and an enormous, leaning boulder with a striking NW arete comes into view. This is the Big Time Boulder. (The approach to the Gymnasium heads off to the west from this point, through a narrow chimney.)

This classic face climb is one of the more notorious highball problems at Hueco. The excellent moves, stellar rock, and memorable finish make this problem a must do for those solid at the grade. Despite the towering height of this problem, the crux is low, and the landing is excellent, so wait for a crowd, layer the pads thick, and go for it!Begin matched in the large hueco 4 feet above the ground and 10 feet right of the NW arete of the Big Time Boulder.
