Huecos Rancheros, a new movie filmed by Owen Bissel and edited by Byron Wolter, is coming out in a month. The 30 minute film features classic problems from Hueco, everything from v0 fun fests to v13 horror shows.
The movie features Mark Heal, Touchstone athlete Ethan Pringle and a number of other climbers.
Pringle and Heal headed out to Hueco for two weeks at the end of January last year. “It's some of the best and most diverse bouldering in the states!” said Pringle about the rock in Texas. “There is a little bit of every style of climbing there- roof, slab, even a few cracks. Every angle of wall, every type of grip. And for the most part the weather is splitter in late fall-early spring. Even though it's a pretty small area, there are so many corridors and boulders and roofs the there's still a load of potential! I know about a few lines that I'd really like to go back and have a crack on.”
One of the cooler problems that Pringle did there was Sol Adunamentum.
Nick Duttle established the low start to the Fern Roof, Sol Adunamentum, a few years ago. The North Mountain test piece suited Pringle well. “I really like roof climbing,” said Pringle. “I was psyched to piece it together so quickly as well.”
The rest of the trailer can be seen below.
