    Some of the best boulder problems in the park are found on West, but the concentration of problems is not as dense as the the other mountains in Hueco. West Mountain is also home to a handfull of excellent roped climbs.

    Featured Route For West Mountain
    Rock Climbing Photo: Reaching the headwall on Legends. The start begins...

    When Legends Die (aka Legends) 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c PG13  Texas : Hueco Tanks : ... : The Eagle
    The best 13a in America. The physical crux is right at the 1st (2 bolts). The pump factor continues for (3 more) spaced out bolts to the headwall. Get ready to blow it on the 12a headwall (2 more bolts) like many of your heros. Try to imagine, the steepest wall with the most shallow huecos ever. 40' falls are lobbed here....[more]   Browse More Classics in Texas
