Ranck E

Ranck E is the center of the three climbs on the main Hueco Wall, but still left of Huecos Rancheros and Pumping Huecos. It heads up the bulging roof directly (there's a big jug up there!). A fairly high first clip and probably harder for shorter folks, but the huecos are positive and abundant so don't shy away.


3 or 4 bolts + anchors.

[Hide Comment] Short and fun.
High, spinning, rusty, 1/4 inch first bolt can be backed up with a #1 Camalot in a pocket. Jun 3, 2012
[Hide Comment] This area contains a few short, funny, but fun routes. Worth doing to be around the beautiful aspen grove. May 27, 2017
