I finally got around to editing a couple short videos from my February road trip to Hueco. I spent most of the trip in Hueco, but I also stopped at Joshua Tree on the way back. Unfortunately I didn’t take too much video in Hueco, but I did manage to get a couple of easy classics on film. The first problem in the Hueco vid is supposed to be the best V2 in world, Nobody Here Gets Out Alive. It was a really good problem, but I wouldn’t say it’s best V2 in the world. The second is Orifice Affair, another classic climb on the namesake huecos. I really hope people don’t overlook the easy problems at Hueco. I did a lot more memorable easy problems than hard (for me) problems.
The problems in the Joshua Tree vid are False Blockhead SDS and the Yabo Roof. False Blockhead SDS is a pretty cool atypical J Tree problem. A couple big bouldery moves leads to easier climbing, very fun. Yabo Roof is a dabby sit start that leads to the purest mantle I’ve ever done. I was pretty psyched to learn how to do that kind of mantle. Enjoy!
