Toxic Hueco Area Rock Climbing
Christian reflecting (literally!) on the perfect s...
This area is home of the classic sport climb, Toxic Hueco, 5.11d. There's also a collection of harder trad lines here as well as some stout sport routes. Nearly all of the routes are very high quality.
Follow the same approach as for the Tan Wall, but continue on the ATV trail after passing the path for the Tan Wall. To access the right end of the Toxic Hueco wall, take the next path on the right heading toward the cliff. This will put you at the start of I'll Buy That For a Dollar. To access the left side of this area, continue further on the ATV trail and take the next trail on the right toward the cliff. This will put you at the base of Toxic Hueco.

This is a really good route. If you brought your trad rack, do it! It feels like a sport route with gear. Start by climb up some large flakes, heading up and left to reach the bolt on a thin face. Make 1 technical thin move (crux) and the head up and right to a stance. The crux is much easier if you are tall. Otherwise you won't be able to easily reach past it.
