  • East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only
  • Some areas require a guide.

  • Description 

    Probably one of the top 3 most trafficed areas before the guided access restrictions. With great problems in the mid-range from V2 or so to V7, sadly you are not allowed to climb on several of the boulders even when on a tour (the 3 bimbos) which makes the area a little more limited but still quite popular. Classics include the Oseter problems V2 and 3, Hobbit V5, Dragonfly V5, Dry Dock V7++, Full Service V10 and many others that are worth doing when in the area. Truly there is something for everyone at the Dragon's Den.

    Full Service V10 7C+  Texas : Hueco Tanks : ... : Dragon's Den
    This is the original V10 (the standard for V10, in fact) at Hueco, and is still considered by many to be the best. It was one of the most sought after ticks in the '90's – it still is for that matter.John Sherman envisioned it and had done the stand, Lip Service, when Dale sent the full rig, calling it “Serves You Right.” However, Sherman's name, "Full Service," seems to have stuck....[more]   Browse More Classics in Texas

    It might be better to split this into three sections, since that is how the Wilder guidebook does it (North, Central, and South). If you're trying to add GPS to these areas, there is actually a pretty big distance between North and South Dragon's Den. Also, since it is an area that requires a guide, each of these areas can have separate groups of climbers.

    Central has climbs like Hobbit and Brittany in a Blender, while South has Dry Dock, Dragonfly, and Full Service.
