O'Conner =Exploits in Hueco Tanks
  2007-01-22 00:00:00    
19 year old James O'Conner from Silver Spring, Maryland has been exploiting Hueco Tanks for the past two months. This past week he made quick work of one of Hueco's hardest testpieces, "Big Nosed Milley". James says it is his proudest ascent so far due to the fact that it is "completely opposite of his style". Previously he has made quick work of difficult climbs such as "Stubby of the Bush Veldt", a classic testpice established by Fred Nicole which rarely gets climbed due to the heinous crimping it requires. James has also completed problems such as "Troglodyte" and "Fat Apache Jogger" in one day efforts, one of his most impressive accomplishments. It is rumered that James is getting close to the classic "El Techo..", which he can almost complete every move on (according to an interview with him earlier this week). Good job James! I am sure we will hear more news soon from this young rock climbing prodigy.

if he can do all the moves of El Techo, certain 8a members may count it as a send.

Wow, kid's destroying the place!

He could always take the slashface finish hold he has stashed somewhere and glue it onto El Techo if the moves are really too hard.
