Hueco Wall

New Mexico > Socorro Area > Box Climbing Areas > Northern Box areas

Description

This small wall contains four sport climbs of moderate difficulty. While this wall is right past Dirt Wall, the different rock angle and features allow much more moderate grades. There is still some loose rock on some of the climbs so use caution.

Gets morning shade, then direct sun. Doesn't get shade for as long as Dirt Wall.

Getting There

Park in the box canyon lot area, and follow the established trail out of the streambed up the hill to Fillet et Papillon wall. Follow the wall and about 50 feet past "New Kids on the Block" you will come upon Hueco Wall.
