“OWA is a great experience in a beautiful part of Colorado. All the counselors are really helpful, fun, and flexible. They help you safely step outside of your comfort zone and personalize your experience. I became close with other campers and built good relationships”- Sage, age 14

OWA Guides Hit Hueco Tanks

Connect with OWA

Well when the weather starts turning to snow and ice else where, the rock junkies are happy to be in Texas! Our guides took a trip out to Hueco tanks the other weekend and enjoyed down right amiable weather conditions. Thanks to the Access Fund and American Alpine Club, our group got to stay at the Hueco Rock Ranch (make sure to pay the iron ranger when no one is there!) positioned right across from the park.

In the mornings, we’d do a solo warm-up on Cake Walk, a nice 250 ft 5.6, just to get the blood pumping and then we’d go hit the high quality bouldering.

Hueco tanks is known for its powerful and aesthetic movements on enormous holds. While much of the park is closed or limited access, there is more than enough world class quality bouldering to go around.
