Woods, Saurwein Win 2012 Hueco Rock Rodeo

Woods, Saurwein Win 2012 Hueco Rock Rodeo

It’s no secret to anyone that has read this site over the years that I enjoy climbing comps.  And while I certainly enjoy indoor climbing comps, outdoor climbing comps are especially fascinating.  Where indoor comps pit competitors against one another on one-off boulder problems, outdoor comps allow climbers to repeat problems they’ve already done and that we, the general climbing public, have heard of, seen or even climbed on ourselves.  So, when the Hueco Rock Rodeo comes around each you know that I’m psyched.

This year’s event saw over 160 competitors testing themselves all across Hueco Tanks State Park, and by all accounts the day was a big success.  Of particular note are the astounding scorecards turned in by the open competitors:  218 V points for the top three men and 152 points for the top three women.  Behold the problems on their scorecards1:
