  • Description 

    This is a water cut cavern that holds the evening cold late into the day. However, it is easy to walk out of the cavern to get into the sun. At times a small stream runs through the entire cavern. One of the most unique and beautiful areas in Hueco and you're virtually guaranteed to never see anyone else down there.

    Getting There 

    From Scream hike South about 300 yards down the trail and there is a small opening through a grove of trees. Hike up through the slabs and you'll pass the Bathtub (V9) on your left. Hike another 150 yards up the slabs and on the left will be a opening that will let you down into the cavern.

    Eckagrata V10 7C+ PG13  TX : Hueco Tanks : ... : The Wellsite
    Eckagrata is essentially two moves of V6 do a hard dyno to a V2/4 top out depending on if you choose to go straight up at the top out or traverse to the left on jugs. The PG-13 rating is for the latter top out as you climb over a boulder that would hurt to land on. This problem is also known as the Wellsite Dyno....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
