Fred Nicole Adds Two Hueco Testpieces

Author: No Comments Share:

Climbing reports that Fred Nicole has completed two new problems at Hueco Tanks.

Nicole, who has established three V14 problems at Hueco in a decade of visits to the Texas park, believes both of these new problems are a bit harder. Nicole added that he has put up at least one other new problem elsewhere in the last year that was â??on my actual limitâ? and might be harder than the Hueco climbs. However, he explained, â??Seeing the state of mind of the latter months in the climbing scene, I didnâ??t feel like talking about my last few realizations (new routes).â? He cited the â??sad evolutionâ? of his problem Dreamtime, originally graded V15 but now considerably easier after repeated episodes of chipping by people who â??feel they can adapt an already climbed line to their own needs.â?
