Sam Davis climbs an extension of Crown of Aragorn (V13) on the East Spur in Hueco Tanks, Texas. “Years and years,” Davis jokes about how long it took to climb this problem. “The feet are like hell. They’re like glass. But today they felt awesome.” A crowded winter destination, Hueco saw countless hard ascents this season by climbers such as Daniel Woods, Jimmy Web, Brion Voges, Brad Weaver, Brian Antheunisse, and many more.
