BRC Junior Team Hueco Tanks Trip 2010!

It was fantastic! The weather was perfect. The kids were psyched. And thanks to the people at Apple, we have lots of video to share with everyone. We spent 6 days in Hueco this year with only one rest day during the week. The start of the trip was a smooth one with some of the Hueco trip veterans doing repeats of former projects. Dallas Milburn did a handy repeat of Sex After Death (V8) and Crimping Christ on the Cross (V10). David Canova got a quick redpoint of Sex After Death as well (check out the video!). Katelyn Hudspeth had a good trip having sent a former nemesis in the form of The Warmup Roof (V4) and a one move wonder in the East Spur Maze (V3). Newcomer Emily Lye cut her teeth (and her tips) on the edges of Hueco. Check out her send of Flexin’ Texan in the East Spur Maze. Remi Arata had a great sophmore effort on several of last years projects. See him terrify is coach on the topout of Left Donkey Show (V6). Spencer Platt, one of the youngest in the group has a proud send of the ultra classic Satan Satan Satan in the Dragon’s Den. One of the more impressive sends of the trip came from Howie Seim on his send of the Warmup Roof, which is about 2 grades harder using the 5’ and under beta. Senior Team BRC member David Canova had a strong effort sending his former project Sex After Death (V8) and breaking into the double digitis with his redpoint of Crimping Christ on the Cross (V10). Dallas Milburn took home the big prizes learning that he can actually do V10 quickly. Check out his send of Purple Flower (V10) in the East Spur Maze.

All in all the trip was a great success. We had a Thanksgiving feast with turkey and all the trimmings at the Hueco Rock Ranch. Our last night was spent playing a crazy game of zombie tag in the playground of Cattleman’s Steakhouse where we all had (except for our vegetarian, Katelyn) the best steaks in Texas. 

Next stop, bouldering Regional Championships, National Championships, and the Spring Break Trip to Red River Gorge, Kentucky! Hi ho buckaroos!
