Well folks, I'm in. I bought my ticket last night for the trip of a lifetime. It's going to be a crazy good time.

I've been thinking about not going Hueco Tanks January, and staying around the south instead; trying to do a bunch of problems I've never done, and saving a ton of money in gas (aka not driving 3000 miles!) . I've hardly even touched little rock city, and I still have projects at HP40 and Rocktown. What do you think I should do? I've never been to Hueco, so I definitely feel that I should go, but I don't have reservations or anything yet. If you've been to the south, and Hueco... give me some advice, I can't make up my mind!!


In the mean time I have to start getting my crap organized.... too much to do, and so little time!

84 days until I leave!!!

Also worthy of note: Going to the Red for 4 days with this guy:


Oh yeah! I one hung Hooligans on my flash attempt at the concave last Saturday! Then I one hung it again, and then again... haha! Oh well. Next time.


  1. Haha... you are going to the Red with Tyler! Yippee! He is a cool kid! I met him at the Red last year...

    So I have climbed in the south and at Hueco. I really liked the south, especially basing myself in Chattanooga where LRC, HP40 and Rocktown were so close. However, Hueco is amazing! (Though I must admit, I hated the scene and the spray.)

    Last year I called in December for some January reservations and was able to get some. Remember you only need reservations for north mountain and you get on the other 3 mountains through a backcountry tour.

    If you go to Hueco, here is some info that might be useful:

    Hope that helps. Sounds like you already know the south, so I won't send you any info on that.
    Hopefully I will see you and Alex in Font in Feb. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
