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.

If you come to this area, don't miss this route! Truly classic! Start by climbing up to gain a large hueco. Figure out a way to reach the next good holds above it (crux). From here, pull the small overhang and head up and right a bit aiming for the next larger overhang. Once you reach the large overhang, head a bit left and pull over the lip using an awesome hold, but you have to find it. Gain a stance and try to shake out.
