  • East Spur is accessed by Guided Tour Only
  • Some areas require a guide.

  • Description 

    A very popular area now that the guide tour system is the only way to acces the "back country". Lots of problems in a relatively small area. Good warm ups which makes it a popular first stop for tours and a good bunch of harder problems to work on depending upon ones abilities, worthy projects from V5 to V13.

    Jingus Bells V5 6C  TX : Hueco Tanks : ... : The Maze
    Crux is the last move of this climb. Maybe better rated as 5.12 a/b. Begin down and left of the obvious chalked ending. Weave your way through varried and fun moves to the end. The dyno is SICK. Don't be afraid to go for it as you land safe and sound onto the boulder behind every time. Nice to have a chalkbag on this one. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
